I adapted this from a poem I found online. The original Author is unknown.
Don't grieve for me, from pain I'm free
I followed the path that was laid, you see.
I knew it was time, I heard the call
I turned around 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 peace on a sunny day.
And though my passing has caused you sorrow
Remember my life, and look to tomorrow
We shared a family; we shared our dreams
The ups and downs, of life’s extremes
I watched my children grow, and love
Seven beautiful grandchildren, sent from above
My life's been full, I've savoured much,
Good family, good times, a loved one's touch.
I knew I was blessed, I was happy with life
I loved my children, I loved my wife
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts, raise a glass to me,
It was my time From pain I'm free.
