Dont grieve for me, for now Im free,
Im 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.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things too I will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My lifes been full, Ive savored much.
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Dont lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
Im with God now, Ive been set free.
