Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free, I’m following the path God has 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 place 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 you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full, I’ve savored much; Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch. Perhaps my time seems all to 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!
