Poetry for Dad

Free

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.
