He Only Takes the Best

God saw she was getting tired
and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around her
and whispered, "Come with Me".

With tear-filled eyes we watched her
suffer and fade away.
Although we loved her deeply,
We could not make her stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
hard-working hands put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
