I’m Free

Don’t cry 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 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, yes, these things I too will miss
Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow
My life has been full, I’ve 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!
