He Only Takes The Best

This poem was read at my best friends father's funeral. I absolutely love it and I just felt others should read it as well. So just to let you all know this is not my work.

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,
And saw you pass away,
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay,
A heart of gold stopped beating,
Two smiling eyes layed to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best,
A thousand times we needed you,
A thousand times we cried,
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died,
A heart of gold stopped beating,
Hard working hands laid to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
