Jack D. Johnson
10 Dec, 1955-06 Nov, 2006
Family and friends remained at his bedside at his passing.
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 close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friend 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 savoured much.
Good times, good friends, 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 it with me
God wanted me now, He set me free
Jack will be missed by all.
