Dont grieve for me, for now Im free
Im following the path God has laid you see.
I took his hand when I heard Him call,
I turned by 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 joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My lifes been full, I savoured much.
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Dont lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee.
God wanted me now;
He set me free!
In loving memory of Donald Anthony Barrett: August 16th, 2013.
