I'm Free Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free I'm following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I head 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 undone must stay that way, I found that peace at the close of 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 of 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 undue grief. Lift up your hearts and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free. - Author Unknown
