Afterglow


I’d like the memory of me

to be a happy one,

I’d like to leave an afterglow

of smiles when life is done.

I’d like to leave an echo

whispering softly down the ways,

of happy times and laughing times

and bright and sunny days.

I’d like the tears of those who grieve,

to dry before the sun of happy memories

that I leave behind when day is done.

Don’t Weep For Me


Don’t weep for me

For I’ve made it home

Through Heavens gates

There I may roam.

Wipe your tears

And dry your eyes

I’m in a better place

With Heaven as my prize.

Don’t weep for me

No tears and no sorrow

Live life for Jesus

He promises tomorrow.

Miss Me But Let Me Go


When I come to the end of the

road and the sun has set for me,

I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.

Why cry for a soul set free!

Miss me a little, but not too long,

and not with your head bowed low.

Remember the love that we once

shared, miss me but let me go.

For this journey we all must take,

and each must go alone.

It’s all part of the Master plan,

a step on the road to home.

When you are lonely

and sick of heart,

go to the friends we know

and replace sorrows

with good deeds.

Miss me, but let me go.

Don’t Cry For Me


Don’t cry for me. I will be okay.

Heaven is my home now, and this is where I’ll stay.

Don’t cry for me. I’m where I belong.

I want you to be happy and try to stay strong.

Don’t cry for me. It was just my time,

but I will see you someday on the other side.

Don’t cry for me. I am not alone.

The angels are with me to welcome me home.

Don’t cry for me, for I have no fear.

All my pain is gone, and Jesus took my tears.

Don’t cry for me. This is not the end.

I’ll be waiting here for you when we meet again.

Son Now In Heaven


Last night while I was trying to sleep

my Son's voice did I hear.

I opened my eyes and looked around

but he did not appear.

He said: Mom, you've got to listen

you've got to understand;

God did'nt take me from you Mom

He only took my hand.

When I called out in pain that day

the moment that I died.

He reached out and touched my hand

and pulled me to His side.

He pulled me up and saved me

from hardship and from pain

My body was so badly hurt

I could never be the same.

My search is really over now

I've found happiness within?

All the answers to empty dreams,

and all that may have been.

I love you all and miss you so,

and I'll always be nearby

My body's gone forever

but my spirit will never die!

Live one day at a time

just understand

God did not take me from you

He only took my hand.

Please Don't Fret

Don't grieve for me - the sad times passed

I'm here in our Homeland, Free at-last.

I have the ultimate healing because

I've left the world, I'm in His Arms of Glory held.

For here in Heaven, there's His Big Embrace

and Joy is seen on each one's face.

Jesus walks among us as our Big Brother and Friend

this is our Home now, we're never alone.

Please do not recall my sufferings past

lay them on Jesus, I'm here at last.

It's True what Scriptures say:

those things we've endured cannot compare

with the weight of His Glory awaiting us..

Yes measureless blessings, on earth untold,

for we cannot describe them, you would have to behold.

And when you too, pass over the other side,

the glorious liberty of the children of God

will be yours also as they are mine.

And you will see Your Rewards for patience on earth

Until then be strong, your Race to run

when you're feeling weak, Rest in His Love.

The Final Flight

(Modified)


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 that peace at the end of the day.
