' Last Farewell - Poem by Linda Ori

Don't grieve for me, now I am gone
You knew I could not stay -
The road was rough, I was too weak
To last another day;

I knew my days were numbered,
Although to leave was sad -
So many lovely memories
Of everything I had;

My life, my loves, my family
That meant so much to me -
I carry them within my heart
To where I need to be;

And where I go is not so far,
I'm just a thought away -
You call to me and I'll be there
Beside you as you pray;

My heavenly family's waiting,
I see them gather 'round -
Find peace, and know I'm not alone,
For I am heaven bound.
