I Am Free
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free to follow the path God made 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 love, to laugh, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, for I found peace at last, that day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembering joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, oh yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with hearts of sorrow. My wish for you is the hope of tomorrow. My life’s been full, I’ve savored much, good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed much too brief, don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wants me now --- He’s set me free.
