God Saw

This poem, by author unknown was featured on my Dee’s ‘Celebration of Life’ pamphlet at his memorial service.
It is so powerful and so beautiful, I wanted to share it with all of you.

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 searched for the author of this and found several versions of this poem and all are attributed to author unknown.
I found this to be so powerful and perfect.
Many Blessings and Love from me to you.

  2. Beautiful.
    We don’t grieve
    for those we’ve lost.
    We grieve for ourselves,
    having lost them.
