Mary Davis

May 23, 1933 — October 11, 2018

God looked around the garden,

And found an empty space.

He 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

For He only takes the best.

He knew that you were weary,

and He knew you were in pain.

He knew that you would never

be well on earth again.

He saw the roads were getting rough,

and the hills were hard to climb.

So He closed your weary eyelids,

and whispered peace be thine.
