Letting Go

God saw you getting tired, healing was not to be,

He wrapped His arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me.”

In tears we stood by your side, we watched your courage each day.

Our hearts hurt for you, you fought so hard to stay.

But when we saw you sleeping so peacefully, free of pain,

We could not wish you back to suffer so again.

She’s gone home to be with you Lord, she’s safe and secure with You,

May she rest in Your arms forever, and love her like we do.
