Closure…

Russ

I am free. Do not grieve for me, for now I am free; I am 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 found that place at the close of day. If parting has left a void, then fill it with remebered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh a kiss; 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 time seemed all too brief, do not lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me NOW, he set me free.

  1. Thank you for publishing this. It is a beautiful verse. It puts into words the feelings I tried to express to a dear friend of mine whose wife of nearly 60 years had died.
    Condolences to you and your family.

  2. This is beautiful my Leicaman!!!!!
