San Fernando, CA

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 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 a place 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 times seems 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.

God saw you were getting tired, And a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around you And whispered, 'Come to me.' A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands now rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.
