I Am Free
Don't grieve for me , for now I'm free
I am 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 peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared,a laugh,a kiss.
Ah,these things I,too will miss
Be not burdened with time or sorrow.
I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow
My life's been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one touched.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with under grief
Lift up your heart and share with me
God wanted me now,He set me free.
