Go rest now Cindy, our precious one,
Your life in eternity has just begun.
Now you can walk, your legs are brand new.
All of heaven is now in your view.
I can see you dancing and running along.
I hear you singing heaven's beautiful song.
The light in your eyes is forever my guide,
Until once again I'm by your side.
Look all around, it's all in your sight,
There will never be another dark night.
Flowers and jewels, the street of pure gold,
And all of the things that we've been told.
I can just imagine the smile on your face
As you walk all around in that beautiful place.
Greeting your brothers as you scurry along,
While singing God's praises with beauty and song.
This is so very hard, but it will all be okay.
It isn't goodbye, for we'll see you one day.
We love you and miss you and at times it will be tough,
But as with all things, God's grace will be enough.
