Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God has chosen 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've now found peace at the end of the 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
Look for the sunshine of tomorrow
My life's been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seems all to brief.
Don't lengthen your pain with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and peace to thee
God wanted me now - He set me free.
