On Back:

DON'T GRIEVE FOR ME FOR NOW I'M FREE
I'M FOLLOWING THE PATH GOD LAID 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 LIVE, TO WORK OR PLAY.
TASKS LEFT UNDONE MUST STAY THAT WAY
I'VE FOUND MY PEACE AT THE CLOSE OF DAY.
IF MY PARTING HAS LEFT A VOID,
THEN FILL IT WITH REMEMBERED JOY.
A FRIENDSHIP SHARED, A LAUGH, A KISS,
AH 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'VE SAVORED MUCH,
GOOD FRIENDS, GOOD TIMES, A LOVED ONE'S TOUCH.
PERHAPS MY TIME SEEMED ALL TO BRIEF.
DON'T LENGTHEN IT NOW WITH UNDUE GRIEF.
LIFT UP YOUR HEART AND SHARE WITH ME,
GOD WANTED ME NOW; HE SET ME FREE.
