God looked around his garden and he found an empty place then, he looked upon the earth and he saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful because he always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, he knew you were in pain, he knew that you were ready to come home to have the wings you’ve rightfully gained. He saw the roads were getting rough and hills were hard to climb so he closed your weary eyes and raised you to the sky.
