God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be.
So he wrapped His arms around you.
And whispered, "Come unto me".
You didn't deserve what you went through,
And so He gave you rest.
God's garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best.
So when I saw you sleeping,
So peaceful and free from pain,
I could not wish you to come back,
To suffer that all again .

We think about you always,
We talk about you still.
You have never been forgotten,
And you never will.
We hold you close within our hearts
And there you will remain,
To walk and guide us through our lives,
Until we meet again.

Blake Anthony Jackson, I love you so much. I will be strong for your mother and brothers, because I know you more than anything right now you would be saying take care of my momma and brothers ash. Rest in piece king! You finally made it to the top love. Until we meet again❤️ I know I'll forever be protected by my guardian angel love ash

He was not sick and he was not in pain so I am not sure why you posted this. Please do not post things that are not true.
