God saw he was getting tired,
and a cure was not to be , so
He put His arms around him
And said, "Come with Me."
With tearful eyes we watched him
Suffer and fade away,
Although we couldn't bear to lose
him, We would not bid him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands laid to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to
HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST.
