“Do Not Grieve for Me” “Do Not Stand On My Grave and Weep!” -As I blew out the candle of my last day here on earth, I felt so free. -Please don’t cry for me but laugh and talk as though I was beside you. -I took God’s hand when I heard His call, I turned my back and left it all. -I could not stay another day, so if my leaving has left a void, then fill it with many remembered joys. -Be not burdened with times of sorrow, my life’s been happy, long, and full. -Remember, I shared many beautiful years on earth with you. I am not gone, part of me is in each one of you. -My love is like Angel’s wings enfolding all of you. So, lift your hearts, share with me. God wanted me now, so he set me free onto a beautiful and amazing place we call Heaven.
