God saw that she was getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around her,
And whispered, “Come with Me.”
With tearful eyes, we watched her suffer,
And saw her fade away.
Although we loved her dearly,
We could not make her stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Your tender hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes “the best.”
