When my Mom passed away at the end of January my Mother in Law sent me this poem. It touched me so much that my husband read it at Mom's service. It brought me and my siblings comfort and I hope it does the same for all of you:
God looked around in Heaven
And found the perfect place.
He looked down upon the earth
And saw your sweet 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 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 he called you home.
