God saw you getting tired

When a cure was not to be.

So He closed his arms around you

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.

So when we saw you sleeping

So peaceful and free from pain

We could not wish you back again

To suffer that again.
