Come With Me

The Lord saw you getting tired


And a cure was not to be.
So He put his arms around you


And whispered “Come with Me.”
With tearful eyes I watched you suffer
And saw you fade away,
Although I loved you dearly,
I could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Your beautiful smile at rest.
Got broke my heart to prove,
He always takes the best.
It’s lonesome here without you.
I miss you so each day.
My life just isn’t the same
Ever since you went away.
When days are sad and lonely


And everything goes wrong,
I hear you gently whisper, “Cheer up and carry on.”
Each time I see your picture
You seem to smile and say,
“Don’t cry, I’m in God’s keeping,
We’ll meet again someday.
