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 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’ve savored much.
Good times, good friends, 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.
Dearest Husband, Father, Grandfather, Uncle, son, and friend.
As the days turn into weeks, and the weeks into months, we’re now at 5 years since you left this earthly life.
How we greatly miss your smile, laughter, twinkling blue eyes, & holding your hand.
We all cherish our memories with you & I’m grateful to still have you in my dreams.
Goodbyes are not forever.
Goodbyes are not the end.
They simply mean I’ll miss you til we meet again.
We love and miss you dearly,
Your family and friends
