God saw that she was getting tired,

A cure was not to be.

So he put his arms around her

And whispered, come and go with me.

Although we loved her dearly,

We could not make her stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

And hard working hands were put to rest,

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best.
