Gods Garden Must Be Beautiful

God looked around the garden and found and empty space.

He looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face.

He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest.

God's garden must be beautiful, for he only takes the best.

He knew you were weary, and He knew you were in pain.

He knew that you would never be on earth again.

He saw the roads were getting rough, and the hill were hard to climb.

So He closed your weary eyelids, and whisphered 

"Peace be thine"
