God's Garden

It has been a year and my thoughts are still with the special friend who was taken to God's Garden. For you Pat.


God looked around His garden
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon earth.
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted You to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering.
He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough,
And hills were hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids,
And whispered “Peace be Thine,”
It broke our hearts to loose you
But you didn’t go alone
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home..

Paddy, thanks for locating the poem.

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
