....Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free. I’m following the path God has chosen 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’ve now found peace at the end of 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; look for the sunshine of tomorrow. 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 your pain with undue grief. Lift up your heart and peace to thee. God wanted me now—He has set me free.
