God saw her getting tired, and a cure was not to be

So he put his arms around her and whispered "Come to me"

With tearful eyes he watched her suffer, and saw her slowly fade away

Although he loved her dearly he could not make her stay

Her golden heart stop beating hardworking hands put to rest

God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best.
