God saw you getting weary, so He did what He thought best. He came and
stood beside you and whispered, “Come and rest. You wished no one a last
farewell, nor even said goodbye. You were gone before we knew it, and only
God knows why. When God called you to come and rest, you didn't go
alone, for part of us went with you, the day God took you home. Sleep on
Ebony and take your rest. We all love you, but God knows best.
