God saw you getting tired
when a cure was not to be.
So He closed His arms
And whispered “Come to Me”.
You didn’t deserve what you
went through and so
He gave you…rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best.
And when I saw you sleeping
So peaceful, free from pain, I could not wish you back
To suffer that again.
