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 peace at close of day.

If my parting 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 times of sorrow,

I wish you sunshine of tomorrow.

My life’s been full, I’ve savored much,

Good friends, good times,

A loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed to brief;

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your hearts and share with me,

God wanted me now;

He set me free.
