I'm Free, 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 the peace 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, oh 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've savored much, good friends, good times, a loved one's touch, perhaps my time seemed all brief, don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts and share with me. God wanted me now, and He set me free
