God looked around His garden
And He found an empty place. He then looked down upon this 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 did not go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

Much love,may we meet again ❤❤

Harley  Journey’s Just Begun Don’t  of him as gone away his journey’s just begun, life holds so many facets this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting from the sorrows and the tears in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing that we could know today how nothing but our sadness can really pass away.
And think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched… for nothing loved is ever lost and he was loved so much.
