THE DAY GOD CALLED YOU HOME
God looked around his Garden
and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon his
earth and saw your loving face.
He saw your path was difficult
and he closed your weary eyes,
He whispered to you, "Peace be Thine"
and gave you wings to fly.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you
on the day God called you home.
Don't think of them as gone away,
their journey has just begun.
Life holds so many facets,
this earth is only one.
Just think of them as resting
from the sorrows and the tears,
in a place of warmth and comfort,
where there are no days and years.
Think of how they must be wishing
that we could know today,
how nothing, but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of them as living
in the hearts of those they touched
for nothing loved is ever lost
and they were loved so much.
