- I'm Free -

Don't grieve for me, 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 undone must stay that way, I found that place at  the close o/ day

If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy  A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss; AI1 yes, these things I too will miss  Be not burdened with times of sorrow,  I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow Life's been full, I savored much, good friends & 'times, a loved one's touch   Perhaps my time seemed 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.
