Corrinne Rosenberger 1918-2007

I'm Free
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 found that place 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 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.

In loving memory of Jack's mom's sister, Corrinne Rosenberger, who had been in failing health this past year. God took her home for Christmas and all Eternity. Aunt Corrinne would have been 90 years old on February 8, 2008. Aunt Corrinne was quite ready and willing to "cross the bar" into Eternity. Therefore, I especially like the very last line of the poem above:
"God wanted me now. He set me free."
