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.
