In Memory of Papa Coe

I'm Free

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.

I'm following the path God has laid, you see.

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 or play.

Tasks left undone must stay that way,

I found the peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void,

Then fill it with remembered joys.

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.

Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your hearts, and peace to thee.

God wanted me now,

He set me free
