May The Lord forever Bless and hold the Family of Ms. Irma U. Payne up, because they have lost someone very, very special. Having faith that this poem will help heal their hearts. Be not so burdened down because the Lord is standing by. Don't grieve for Me, for now I am Free. I am following the path God has laid, 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, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way I found that 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. Be not burdened with times of sorrow I wish you the Sunshine of Tomorrow. Lift up your Hearts and Peace to thee, God wanted me now; He set me Free.
