God’s Garden
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 you were in pain
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough,
and 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.
I Love You Frank
