Don't Grieve for me, for now I'm free
I am following the path God has laid you see.
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 joys.
A love shared, family & friends, a laugh, a kiss,
Oh, yes these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with time of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My life's been full, I savored much.
Proud parents, lovely wife, beautiful daughter,
wonderful sisters, great brother, good friends,
good times, cherish moments, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and and peace to thee.
God wanted me now; He set me free!
