"Don't grieve for me,
for now I'm free.
I've left behind some misery.
My days of youthful agility
Were no longer a possibility.
My weak joints and cloudy eyes,
Were longing for the heavenly skies.
Before I lost all dignity
You let me enter eternity.
Don't grieve for me,
You've set me free,
Just remember how I used to be!"
