God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So he put His arms around you
and whispered, “come to me”
With tearful eyes
we watched you suffer, and
saw you slowly fade away.
Although we loved you dearly,
we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands put to rest,
God broke our herats to
prove to us,
He only takes the best.
Loving you always,
Josie and Family
