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.
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 one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seems all to brief; Don't lengthen your pain with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me, I’m with God now, I’ve been set free.
