In tears we saw you sinking.
We watched you fade away.
You suffered much in silence.
You fought so hard to stay.
You faced your task with courage.
Your spirit did not bend.
But you still kept on fighting,
Until the very end.
God saw you getting tired.
When a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you,
And whispered, “Come to Me.”
You didn’t deserve what you went through
So He took you home to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful
For He only takes the best.
