God looked around his garden
He found it in empty place he then looked down upon this Earth
and saw your tired face
He put his arms around you
and lifted you to rest
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best
He knew that you were suffering
He knew that you were in pain
He knew that you would never
get well on Earth again
He saw the road was getting rough
and the hills were hard to climb
so he closed your weary eyelids
and whispered” please be thine. “
It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn’t go alone for a part of us went with you that day god called you home.
