Do not grieve for me 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 the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I’ve savored so much, good friends,
good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, don’t lengthen it now with undone grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me, for God wanted me now
– He set me free.
