I Am Free

Don’t grieve for me, for now 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 love, to laugh, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way, for I found peace at close of day.
If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembering joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with hearts of sorrow.
I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow.|
My life’s been full, I’ve 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 wants me now
— He’s set me free.
