Now, I lay me down to sleep.
But, for my soul, please do not weep.
For, Earth was ne'er my final choice.
God sent for me. I obeyed His voice.
His angels gently closed my eyes.
For, I was weary, please realize.
"Sleep now, it's time for you to rest."
I heard God say, "Child, I know what's best.
Fret not for those who must remain.
I'll dry their tears and heal their pain.
Very soon, I'll cause them to see
You're Home, at last, in Heav'n with Me.
Your trials have ended, now, dear one.
Each earthly battle has been won.
There'll be no heartache, pain, or tear.
Welcome Home, my child, so dear!"
So, please don't weep too long for me.
Dear ones, we'll be reunited, wait & see,
Rejoicing together on Heav'n's shore
Where we'll reside FOREVERMORE!
May your hearts be somewhat comforted
During this time of deepest pain,
To know this loss you suffer, now,
Is "HEAVEN'S SWEETEST GAIN" !!!
