Times up

Don't grieve for me,
For now I'm free.
I following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard him call,
I turned my back and let 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 that place at the close of day,
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a drink,
Ah 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 time,
Good friends,
A tall tale.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Left up your heart and share with me...
God wanted me now,
He set me free.
