May the road rise
to meet you.
May the wind
be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields, and, until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
-Traditional Irish Prayer
God saw she was getting tired;
And a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around her,
And whispered, “Come with Me.”
With tearful eyes, we watched her suffer,
And saw her fade away.
Although we loved her dearly,
We could not make her stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
God only takes the best.
