Shi-Shi by Laurie Manuel / Mommy and Our Family


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 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 parts of us went with you
The day God called you home.
