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 my place at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void

Then fill it with remembered joys.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,

Ah yes, these things I too shall 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 life seemed all too brief:

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your heart and share with me;

God wanted me now, He set me free.
