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 the 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 yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow. I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full, I 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.
You suffered much, murmured not We watched you day by day; And prayed that your dear life, Would not be taken away. But when we saw you sleeping, So peaceful, free from pain, We could not wish you back, To suffer that again. To you who have a mom, Cherish her with care; You will never know the heartache Till you see her empty chair.
