God saw you getting tired, when a cure was not to be. So He wrapped his arms around you, and whispered, "come to me."
You didn't deserve what you went through, so He gave you rest.
God's garden must be beautiful. He only takes the best. And when I saw you sleeping, so peacefully and free from pain,
I could not wish you back to suffer that again.
