Grieve Not For Me - Poem by Angela Firkin

Grieve not for me as I pass from this life
For I am embarking on a journey into a land of
Great beauty and joy.
And thou I am sad to leave behind my family and friends,
I will not grieve.

As I enter into this glorious land, I go with the knowledge
That we will all meet again on those golden shores.
So look to each other for comfort
For my comfort is coming from my savior.
He awaits me with open arms to guide me on this
Wondrous journey on which I am going.

As my eyes close and my chest rises for my final breath
For on this day I shall be in heaven
