Farewell to Faith

Faith at age 3 as a beautiful angel & flower girl

God’s Garden

God looked around His garden
And He found an empty place
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your precious 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 you’ d never ever
Get well on earth again.

So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered ” Peace be thine ”
Then He took you up to Heaven
With Hands so gentle and kind.

It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God welcomed you home.
