  • God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be had. So he put his arms around you and whispered come with me. With tearful eyes I watched you suffer and saw you fade away. Although I loved you dearly I could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped abeating hard, working hands at rest. God broke my heart to prove to us he only takes the best. God will love you and keep you until we meet againsomeday. Waite for me, I am coming your loving wife.
