God Saw You Getting Tired

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

And saw you pass away

And although we love you dearly

We could not make you stay.


A Golden heart stopped beating

Hard working hands at rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best.
