  I'm Free
Don't grieve for me, for 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 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 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 heart and share with me;
God wanted me now, He set me free.
