Comfort in a poem...


Recommended Posts

Thought I had found this here but after searching of this board cannot find it, so I thought I would share it in hopes that it might bring others the comfort that it does me. It makes me cry but also comforts my heart because it seems to have been written about our "journey" with lung cancer, Dad's death, and his new found freedom from pain and suffering...


God looked around His garden;

He found an empty place

He then looked down upon this

earth and saw your tired face.

He put His arms around you

and lifted you to rest

God's garden must be beautiful,

He always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering;

He knew you were in pain

He knew that you would never

get well on earth again.

He saw that road was getting rough

and the hills are hard to climb

So He closed your weary eyelids

and whispered peace be thine.

It broke our hearts to lose you

but you didn't go alone

For part of us went with you

the day God called you home.
