Come With Me

The Lord saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So He put his arms around  you
And whispered “Come with me.”

With tearful eyes, we watched you suffer
And saw you fade away.
Although we loved your dearly,
We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
A beautiful smile at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes the best.

It’s lonesome here without you.
We miss you so each day.
Out lives aren’t the same
Since you went away.

When days are sad and lonely,
And everything goes wrong
We seem to hear you whisper,
“Cheer up and carry on.”

Each time we see your picture,
You seem to smile and say,
“Don’t cry. I’m in God’s keeping.
We’ll meet again someday.”
