Beautiful Poem Given To Me

God saw you were getting tired and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you and whispered, "Come to Me".  With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away, although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.  A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest.  God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the BEST.

I think that is where I got it actually, from the funeral home that I did some work at helping out with families and their bereavement group.

Here is another poem given to me.


Mom


Gone is a mother loved by all
Her soul is now at rest
She'll sleep in peace ~ her work is done ~
A mother's work ~ the best.
She'll know the joy of perfect rest
In Heaven up above,
Where she may dwell contentedly
Protected by God's love.
Our hearts may grieve that she must lie
Beneath the sacred sod,
And yet we know she lives in peace
Within the house of God.

Becca, the first poem is what we had put on my mom's memory cards at the funeral.


I absolutely adore the second poem!
