God looked around His garden
and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth
and saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you
and lifted you to rest.
Godís garden must be beautiful;
He always takes the best.
He saw the road was getting rough
and the hills were hard to climb,
so he closed your weary eyelids
and whispered. ĎPeace be thine.Ē
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you didnít go alone,
for parts of us went with you
the day God called you home.
