"I'm Free-
Please don't grieve for me now, I'm Free, I'm 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, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found peace at the close of the day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joys. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Oh, yes these things too I will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I've savored much, My family, my friends, a loved ones touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don't lengthen now with undue grief. Life up your hearts and peace to thee, God wanted me now, to set me free".
