I’m free

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free

I’m following the path God has laid you see

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 the close 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

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow

My life’s been full , I savored much .

Good friends , good times , a loved ones 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 wants me now , I’m home safe

He set me free !
