David's Memorial Card



Poem that we put inside -

GOD SAW THAT HE WAS GETTING TIRED
AND THE CURE WAS NOT TO BE.
SO HE PUT HIS ARMS AROUND HIM
AND WHISPERED, "COME BE WITH ME."

WITH TEARFUL EYES WE WATCHED HIM SUFFER
AND SAW HIM FADE AWAY
ALTHOUGH WE LOVED HIM DEARLY,
WE COULD NOT MAKE HIM STAY.

A GOLDEN HEART STOPPED BEATING,
BUSY LITTLE HANDS TO REST.
GOD BROKE OUR HEARTS TO PROVE TO US,
HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST.

IT'S LONESOME HERE WITHOUT YOU
WE MISS YOU SO EACH DAY,
OUR LIVES AREN'T THE SAME
SINCE YOU WENT AWAY.

WHEN DAYS ARE SAD AND LONELY,
AND EVERYTHING SEEMS TO GO WRONG,
WE SEEM TO HEAR YOU WHISPER,
"CHEER UP AND CARRY ON."

EACH TIME WE SEE YOUR PICTURE,
YOU SEEM TO SMILE AND SAY,
"DON'T CRY I'M IN GOD'S KEEPING,
WE'LL MEET AGAIN SOMEDAY."
