This touching Verse was one my husband discovered his Irish ancestors had borrowed. A few years ago he offered it to a family to use as a Prayer Card. It was read at the service of a Spanish Dignitary. The saying goes…”Everyone has a little Irish in them”.
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free! I follow the plan God laid for me.
I saw His face, I heard His call, I took His hand and left it all…
I could not stay another day. To love, to laugh, to work or play;
Tasks left undone must stay that way. And if my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss…
Ah yes, these thing I, too, shall miss. My life’s been full, I’ve savored much;
Good time, good friends, a loved-one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief-
Don’t shorten yours with undue grief. Be not burdened with tears of sorrow,
Enjoy the sunshine of tomorrow.
