God saw you getting tired when a cure was not to be

So He closed his arms around you and whispered "Come to me".

You didn't deserve what you went through

So He gave you rest

God's garden must be beautiful

He only takes the best.

And when He saw you sleeping

so peaceful and free from pain,

we could not wish you back to suffer that again

We will love you forever.
