Day God Called You Home (Poem 8)
God looked around his garden and found an empty place. He
then looked down upon this earth and saw your loving face.
put his arms around you
and lifted you to rest.
His garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you
were in pain.
He saw your path was difficult, He closed your tired eyes,
He whispered to you" Peace be thine" and gave you wings to fly.
When we saw you sleeping so calm and free of pain,
we would not wish
you back to earth
to suffer once again.
You've left us precious
memories, your love will be our guide,
you live on through us, you're always
by our side.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you on the day God called you home.
