We sat beside your bedside,
And watched you fade away;
And though our hearts were breaking,
We knew you could not stay.

What you suffered you told but few,
You did not deserve what you went
Tired and weary, you made no fuss,
But tried so hard to stay with us.

God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be
He closed His arms around you
And whispered ‘Come with me’.

We hold you close within our hearts,
And there you shall remain,
To walk with us throughout our lives,
Until we meet again.

If memories bring us closer
We are never far apart
God has you in His keeping
We have you in our hearts.
