God saw you getting tired,
He did what he thought best;
" He put His arms around you,
And said, "
Come and rest."
He opened up His golden gates,
On that heart breaking day;
And with His arms around you,
You gently slipped away. 
It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone;
A part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

As you hold me close in memory, even though we are apart,
my spirit will live on,
there within your heart....
I am with you always.

When you lean on
trusted friends and their
caring hugs enfold you,
within their loving arms,
I'll be there to hold you....
I am with you always.

And beyond the far horizon
when we'll finally be together,
where love will be eternal
and life will last forever....
I am with you always.
