Funeral Memorial Poem – I Am Free by Shannon Lee Moseley When we struggle to let someone go after they pass away, it is worth remembering their life; what they achieved, what they enjoyed and what they brought to life. This wonderful poem gives us such a reminder, hopefully making it easier to let them move on to the next place.
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,
I’m 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 undone must stay that way
I’ve found that peace at the close of the day.
If parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah, yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savoured much
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
God wants me now,
He set me free.
