God saw he was getting tired,
and a cure was not to be.
Though he put his arms around him
and whispered, “come with me.”
With tearful eyes we watched
him suffer and saw him fade away.
Although we loved him dearly,
we could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating
hard-working hands put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
to us. He only takes the best.
