My wonderful friend Christy found this poem the other day, and I think it's perfect for Marie... I think she was meant to find it. It brought me a huge amount of comfort on a very difficult day last week... It's amazing to think that only a few weeks have passed... in some ways it's like a lifetime, in other ways it feels like it's only been a moment since Little Mama was here...
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God has chosen 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 left undone must stay that way;
I've now found peace at the close of the 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
Look for 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 to brief;
Don't lengthen your pain with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and peace to thee,
God wanted me now-He set me free
