let your grief then stay your hand,
For this day more than all the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
What is to come will hold no fears,
You wouldn’t want me to suffer, so,
When the time comes, please let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they’ll tend,
Only stay with me, until the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agreeIt is a kindness you do to meAlthough my tail its last has waved
From pain and suffering I’ve been saved.
Don’t grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do,
We’ve been so close – we two – these years,
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.
God’s Garden Must Be Beautiful
God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be.
So He wrapped His arms around you,
And whispered, “Come to Me”.
You didn’t deserve what you went through,
So He gave you rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He only picks the best.
And when I saw you sleeping,
So peaceful and free from pain,
I could not wish you back
To suffer that again.

Don’t Mourn for Me
Friend, please don’t mourn for me.
I’m still here, though you don’t see.
I’m right by your side each night and day.
and within your heart I long to stay.
My body is gone but I’m always near.
I’m everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I’ll never depart.
as long as you keep me alive in yourheart.
