I’m Free

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free, I’m following the path that 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

passing has 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 time of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full; I savored much good friends, good times, and a loved one’s
touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all to brief, don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift your head up and share with me, God wanted me now, and he set me free.
