Free (Poem 1)
grieve for me, for now Im free
Im following the path God has laid
I took His hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left
could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
left undone must stay that way
I found that peace at the close of day.
my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
shared, a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My lifes been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved
my time seemed all too brief
Dont lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free.
