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 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.

Each time we see your picture,

You seem to smile and say, “Don’t cry,

I’m in God’s keeping,

We’ll meet again someday.”
