God looked around his garden
And he found an empty place.
He then looked down upon this earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his Arms around you,
And lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone
For parts of us went with you
The day God call you Home.
