I Am 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 His 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’ve found that peace at the 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 for you the sunshine of tomorrow. 

My life’s been full, I savored much,

 good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. 

Perhaps my time seemed all to brief, 

don’t lengthen it now with undo grief. 

Lift up your hearts and share with me

 God wanted me now

he has set me free… - Author Unknown
