GOOD-BYE, MY LARRY... GOOD-BYE

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 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 that 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,
Oh 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

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up you hearts and peace to thee.
God wanted me now; He set me free!

Miss Me - But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road
and the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room,
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little - but not too long,
And not with your heads bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me - but let me go.

For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone.
It's all a part of the Master's plan,
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know.
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,
Miss me - but let me go.
