    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 and play. Tasks left un- done must stay that way. I found that place at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friend- ship shared, a laugh, a kiss. Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss. Be not burdened with times of sor- row. I wish you the sunshine of to- morrow. My life’s been full, I sa- vored much; good friends, good times and a loves one’s touch.
