I’m free

Don’t grieve for me, for now I am 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 and play.

Tasks left undone, must stay that way;

I found that place 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 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 savoured much;

Good friends, good time, a loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seems 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!!!

Have a great day πŸ€—πŸ’•

  3. Ohh..Jyoti.. really it touched my heart. The reality of death. Nowadays I find less time for blogging and fails to reach all blog posts. Feeling happy that I reach to this work. This is touching deep to my heart. Especially the lines…
