God saw you getting tired and a cure not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered, ?Come to Me.? With tearful eyes I watched you and saw you pass away and, although I loved you dearly, I could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. God broke my heart to prove to me he only takes the best.
