God Looked Around His Garden

God looked around His garden

and found an empty place.

Then He looked down upon the earth

and saw your tired face.

He placed His arms around you

and lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful,

for He only takes the best. He knew that you were suffering,

He knew you were in pain,

He saw the road was getting rough

and the hills were hard to climb,

so He closed your eyes and whispered

“Peace be Thine.”

It broke our hearts to lose you but you did not go alone,
a part of us went with you

the day God called you home.

If love would have saved you, you never would have died.
