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 herd 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 place at the end of the 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’ve savored much, Good friends, good times, A loved ones touch. Perhaps my time seemed all to 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. May you rest in peace Aunt Dawn <3
