I’m Free

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free

I’m following the path God has chosen 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’ve now found peace at the end of the day

If parting has left a void,

Then fill it with remembered joys.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss

Oh yes, these things, I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow

Look for the sunshine of tomorrow.

My life’s been full, I savored much

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

Perhaps my time seems all to brief

Don’t lengthen your pain with undue grief.

Lift up your heart and peace to thee,

God wanted me now, He set me free.
