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