God saw you getting tired,

When a cure was not to be.

So He wrapped his arms around you,

and whispered, "come to me."

You didn't deserve what you went through,

So He gave you rest.

God's garden must be beautiful,

He only takes the best.

And when I saw you sleeping,

So peaceful and free from pain.

I could not wish you back

To suffer that again.

And her children said, "We will carry you with us always".
