American Patriotic 10


Nathaniel Gurley

February 12, 1922 ~ July 11, 2018 (age 96)


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 his 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’ve found the peace at the end of the 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 too I will miss.

Be not burdened with time or sorrow,

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My life’s been full; I’ve savored much,

 good friends, good times, and loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too 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”.
