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 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.
O yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seems 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.
