A message to Mom

God saw you getting tired

When a cure was not to be

So he closed his arms around you,

and he whispered “Come to Me”

you didn’t deserve what

you went through,

so he gave you rest,

God’s garden must be beautiful,

he only takes the best.

And when we saw you sleeping

So peaceful and free from pain,

we could not wish you back,

to suffer that pain again.

We love you and

will miss you so very much.

Your loving family and friends.
