May he rest in peace.
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path set out for me.
I took God’s 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 my peace at the close of day.
When my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
