God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you, and whispered Come to me. With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away, Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. Your golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest God broke our hearts, to prove to us He only takes the best.
