God Saw You Getting Tired

Disclaimer: I Didn't make this poem, I don't know who did, but I'm putting it on here because my Poppy passed away two months ago, and this poem reminds me of him, and it's also very beautiful

God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So He put His arms around you
And whispered "Come with me."
With tearful eyes
We watched you suffer
And saw you fade away,
Although we loved you dearly
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stops beating
Hard working hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes the best.
It's lonesome here without you
We miss you more each day
Life doesn't seem the same
Since you've gone away.
When days are sad and lonely
And everything goes wrong
We seem to hear you wihsper
"Cheer up and carry on."
Each time we see your picture
You seem to smile and say
"Don't cry, I'm in God's keeping
We'll meet again some day."
