God Saw You

God watched as you suffered,
And knew you had your share.
He gently closed your weary eyes
And took you in His Care.
God has you in His keeping;
We have you in our hearts.
Your memory is our keepsake,
And with that we'll never part.
God saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So, He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come with Me."
With tearful eyes, we watched you surrender
And saw you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hardworking hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.

- Love your wife, son, daughter, sisters, brothers, nephews, nieces, inlaws, cousins and friends.
