I Am Free

Poem by amanda oaks

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I am 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 or play
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that peace at the close of the day
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Ah, these things I, too, will miss
Be not burdened with time of sorrow
I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow
My life has been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times
a loved one touched
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lenghthen it now with undue grief
Lift up your heart and share with me
God wanted me now; He set me free
(Author Unknown)
