    God saw she was getting tired

    and a cure was not to be.

    So, he put His arms around her,

    and whispered come with Me.

    With tearful eyes we watched her suffer

    and although we loved her

    dearly,

    we could not make her stay.

    A golden heart stopped beating,

    hard working hands to rest.

    God broke our hearts to prove

    to us

    He only takes the best.
