God saw him getting tired, and a cure was not to be
So He put His arms around him and whispered “Come to Me”.
With tearful eyes we watched him suffer and slowly fade away.
Although we love him dearly, we could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands put to rest,
God broke our hearts, to prove to us, He only takes the best.
