Kingdom

Rating: 5.0
God looked around His Kingdom and found a heavenly face,
In you He saw a kindly soul in his heaven He kept you a place,
He wrapped His arms around you and elevated you to rest,
As His garden is full of beauty He only takes the best,

He saw you in your agony, He saw your tears fall like rain,
He knew it was time to take you away as
your body could take no more pain.

The stairway to his kingdom was for you the last hill to climb,
He then closed your weary eyelids,
and whispered now you are mine.

It broke many hearts to lose you,
But you did not go on your own.
A part of us went with you the day that God called you home...
