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,
Until the very end,
When God saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be,
He put His arms around you,
And whispered, ‘Come with Me.’
But when we saw you slip away,
So peacefully free from pain,
We could not wish you back,
To suffer that again.
But never shall we forget you,
We will always love and care;
As long as life and memory last,
Your dear sweet face is there.
God will link the broken chain,
When one by one we meet again.
