God's Garden


Colleen Carey

God looked around his garden
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the 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.
He knew that you were suffering,
He knew that you were in pain,
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was gettng rough
And the hills were hard to climb,
So he closed your weary eyelids
And whispered "Peace be thine".
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
