God Looked Around His Garden

An Empty Place

Poem Cards  Quote Cards

God looked around his Garden
and found an empty place –
He then looked down upon his earth
and saw your loving face.

He put his arms around you
and lifted you to rest –
His Garden must be beautiful
he always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering
he knew you were in pain –
And knew that you would never
get well on earth again.

He saw your path was difficult
he closed you tired eyes –
He whispered to you “Peace be Thine”
and gave you wings to fly.

When we saw you sleeping
so calm and free of pain –
I wouldn’t wish you back
to earth to suffer once again.

You’ve left us precious memories
your love will be our guide –
You live on through your children
you’re always by our side.

It broke our hearts to lose you
but you did not go alone –
For part of us went with you
on the day God called you home.
