logoDon't grieve for me for now I'm free,
I'm off to see past friends you see.
I've closed my eyes 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,
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
Perhaps my time seems all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
