God looked around his garden,
And he found an empty place,
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw her tired face.
He knew that she was suffering,
He knew she was in pain,
He also knew in heaven,
that she would never hurt again.
He saw the road was getting rough,
And the hills were hard to climb
So he closed her weary eyelids
And whispered "Peace be thine.
He put his arm around her,
And lifted her to rest
God's garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
It broke our hearts to lose her,
But she didn't go alone
For part of us went with her...
The day God called her home.
If tears could build a stairway,
and memories were a lane,
We would walk right up to heaven
to bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken
no time to say goodbye
you were gone before we knew it,
and only God knows why.
Our heart still aches in sadness
and secret tears still flow,
what it meant to lose you,
no one will ever know.
