God saw you were getting tired
and a cure was not to be
So He put his arms around you
and whispered, "Come with me."
With a tearful eye I watched you
Slowly fade away.
Although I loved you dearly,
I would not make you stay.
.A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest,
God broke my heart
To prove to me
He only takes the best.
