I’m Free
(Sympathy Poems)

Don’t grieve for me
for now I’m free ..
I’m following the path
God has laid you see.

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, to play.

Tasks left undone
must stay that way ..
I found that peace
at the close of 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 savored much ..
Good friends, good times
a loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed
all too brief ..
Don’t lengthen it now
with undue grief.

Lift up your hearts
and peace to thee ..
God wanted me now
He set me free.
