Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free.
I’m following the path God has Laid you see.
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 and play. Tasks left undone
Must stay that way. I found that peace at
The close of the day.
If my parting has left a void, then fill
It with the remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.
Oh yes, these things I to 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 to brief.
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee.
God wanted me now; He set me free!
