God saw you getting tired
when a cure was not to be.
So he wrapped his arms around you
and whispered, “Come unto me”.
You didn’t deserve what you went through,
and so he gave you rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful,
he only takes the best.
So when I saw you sleeping so peaceful and free from pain,
I could not wish you to come back,
to suffer that all again.
