Don’t Grieve for Me, for Now I’m Free

~I’m Free~
Don’t Grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God laid for me
I took His hand when I heard His 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’ve 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
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 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 heart and share with me
God wanted me now; He set me free…..

I do not know who wrote this poem.  Joe had sent this to a cherished friend of his in August of 2009 when her grandmother died and she sent it back to us yesterday.

  1. I hope this poem brings u much comfort, as it did to me. Joe was always so thoughtful & loving. As I read this poem, I feel like it is his personal words to me.. it brings tears to my eyes, but also warms my heart because (he) reminds me to dwell on all the many good memories & time with him. Joyce, u r in my prayers always.
