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 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 you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s bee full, I’ve savoured 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
Here’s to you dearest read who may have lost a loved one. May you find comfort and strength.
