God saw you were getting tired, 
When a cure was not to be.
He closed His arms around you
And whispered, "Come to Me."
In tears we saw you sinking,
We watched you fade away.
Our Hearts were almost broken,
You fought so hard to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping,
So peacefully, free from pain,
We would not wish you back
To suffer that again.
So treasure her, Lord,
In your garden of rest,
For here on earth, 
She was the best.
