God Called Your Name So Softly

God called your name so softly,

that only you could hear

And no one heard the footsteps

Of angels drawing near.

It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone,

For part of us went with you,

the day God called you home.

You’re always close beside us, in everything we do,

You were our greatest treasure, God’s gift to us was you.

We will always remember that way you looked,

the way you talked and smiled,

The little things you said and did

to make our lives worthwhile.

Each time we look at your picture,

you seem to smile and say,

Don’t be sad but courage take

and love each other for my sake.

Just a prayer from the family to you,

just a memory fond and true,

In our hearts you will stay forever

because we thought the world of you.
