I'm Free

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 his call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I've found that peace at the end of the day. If my parting has left a void, A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah yes, these things too I will miss.
