                          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 his call
I turned my back and left you all.
I could not stay another day
To love, to laugh, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found the 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 ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift up your hearts, and peace to thee,
God wanted me now he set me free.

                                   AN ODE TO MY SON DAVID

I miss you Dave and I always will as long as my heart does beat,
I long to see that familiar smile, those eyes twinkle oh so sweet!
It only seems like yesterday that you were here by my side,
But the months and years come so very slow, my tears are never dried.
If I'd known you were leaving us, what would I have liked to say?
What could we have done, where could we have gone before that fateful day?
There are so many things that seem left undone, so much that I have to bear,
I wish that you could come home for a day, to hug you on earth right here.
My Dave, you know how I miss you so, how much my heart does ache,
They say God gives us just so much pain, enough that we can take.
Did God really know when He took you home my life went with you too?
I'm just a shell of my former self, life isn't the same without you.
God promises I'll see you again, my faith is all I have left.
I love you my son, my sweet precious son, but I'm feeling so low and bereft.
Please send me a sign that you're happy up there, a sign that you want to be free,
Then maybe, just maybe I can carry on, and wait until you come call me!

    HE ONLY TOOK MY HAND

Last night while I was trying to sleep
My son's voice I did hear,
I opened my eyes and looked around
But he did not appear.

He said 'Mom, you've got to listen,
You've got to understand,
God didn't take me from you mom,
He only took my hand.

When I called out in pain that day,
The moment that I died,
He reached down and took my hand
And pulled me to His side.

He pulled me up and saved me
From the misery and pain.
My body was hurt so badly
I could never be the same.

My search is really over now,
I've found happiness within,
All the answers to my empty dreams
And all that might have been.

I love you all and miss you so
And I'll always be nearby.
My body's gone forever
but my spirit will never die.

And so, you must go on now,
And live, and understand...
God did not take me from you,
He only took my hand.
