Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free;
I’m following the path God laid, you see.
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 found the peace at the close of day.
If my 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,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I’ve savored much.
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief –
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts, and peace to thee –
God wanted me now; He set me free
