21. Meaningful Poem

by rnb10

Poetry is not one of my hobbies although this poem means a lot to me. This is the poem I read out at my Nana’s funeral therefor it is very close to my heart and brings back many memories, happy and sad.

“Gods Garden”

God looked around his garden
And found an empty place,
He then 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
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids
And whispered, ‘Peace be Thine’.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
