God saw you getting tired, the cure was not to be.
He wrapped you in his loving arms and whispered “Come with me”
You suffered much in silence; your spirit did not bend.
You faced your pain with courage, until the very end. You tried so hard to stay with us. Your fight was not in vain. God took you to His loving home and freed you from all pain.
You didn’t deserve what you went through.
And so He gave you rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.
