I’m Free

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free

I’m following the path God laid for me,

I took His hand when I heard Him call

I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day

To laugh, to love, to work or play.

Tasks left undone must stay that way.

I found that place at the close of day.

If my parting left a void

Then fill it with remembered joy.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss

Ah, yes, these things, I too, will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow.

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My life’s been full, I savored much.

Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief,

Lift up your heart, and share with me

God wanted me now, He set me free!
