Donít grieve for me for now Iím free.
Iím 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 peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Oh yes these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My lifeís been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved oneís touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief,
Donít lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now --- He set me free.
