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 the 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 one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief; Don't lengthen it now with undo grief. Lift up your heart and share with me; God wanted me now, He set me free.
