I am free

Donate to Marie Curie Cancer Care

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,

I’m following paths God made for me

I took his hand, I heard him call

Then turned, and bid farewell to all


I could not stay another day

To laugh, to love, to sing, to play

Tasks left undone must stay that way

I found my peace … at close of play


And if my parting 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… deep with sorrow

I wish you sunshine of tomorrow

My life’s been full I’ve savoured much

Good friends, good times

A loved one’s touch.


Perhaps my time seemed all too brief

Don’t lengthen it now with grief

Lift up your heart and share with me,

God wants me now … He set me free.*

* alternative last line = The joy of love and life – for now I’m free
