Elsa Quirino Ballesteros


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 love, to work, or play

Tasks left undone must stay that way

I’ve 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,

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 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
