    I'M FREE

    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 place 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 ones touch.

    Perhaps my time seems all to 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.
