In loving memory of Elliott Cumberledge, who passed away 2 years ago, March
God watched you as you suffered
He knew you had your share,
He tenderly closed your weary eyes
And took you in His care.In tears I saw you sinking
And watched you fade away,
It crushed my heart to know
God had taken you away.
But when I saw you sleeping
Peacefully free from pain
I could not wish you back
To suffer that again.
I often think of you
And speak of how you died,
To think you could not say goodbye
Before you closed your eyes.
Sadly missed by Wife Freda.
