I’ve closed my eyes and fallen asleep,

So there’s no reason for you to weep;

This is a debt we all must pay,

You will see me again someday.

I’ve endured pain and sometimes sorrow,

Now I don’t have to worry about tomorrow.

But life for you must go on,

You must not worry because I’m gone.

You stood beside me all the way,

When I was down, you knew what to say

... You always told me, “get some rest,”

Let me sleep now, I’ve done my best.

So please let me rest in peace,

The tears you’re shedding soon will cease.

You’ll soon realize this was meant to be,

I thank God because He came for me.
