In tears we saw you sinking,
We watched you fade away.
You suffered much in silence,
You fought so hard to stay.
You faced your task with courage,
Your spirit did not bend.
And still you kept on fighting
Until the very end.
God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you
and whispered “Come to me. ”
When we saw you sleeping
So peaceful, free from pain
We could not wish you back
to suffer that again.
