God’s Love

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So, he

Put his arm around you, and whispered sweetly,

“Come to me”

With tearful eyes we watched you fade away. Although we

Loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands now


GOD broke our hearts to prove to use he only takes the
