I’m Free

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free:

I took His hand and when I heard Him call;

I turned my back and left it all.

 If my parting has left a void;

Then fill it with remembered joy. 

My life’s been full, I savored much;

Good friends, good times,

A loved one’s touch. 

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;

Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss. 

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. 

Lift up your hearts and share with me;

God wanted me now, He set me free.
