DON'T CRY FOR ME by Pearlie Duncan Walker
When I'm gone; don't cry for me
I am not dead; I'm in sweet eternity
I'll live forever; I'll wait for all of you
When it's your time; it's what God would have us do.
He called my name; He said come home
I did not die; please do not cry; I will no more roam
I'll be by our Savior forever; soon, you too
We'll walk in the light; praising God in all that we do.
Do not mourn for me; I have sweet victory
I'll walk in Gods' garden; and glories see
I am not dead; He set me free; an Angel called to me
Its beautiful here; Heavens' full of cheer; you'll see.
I did not die my love; I only went ahead
I knew you'd understand; though I know this, you'll dread
That will pass too; do all God would have you do
Maybe up there God will let me have; a glimpse of you.
I did not die, so do not cry; I'll meet you here one day
Jesus will send an Angel to bring you to me; all the way
Our love is sure; our hearts are strong
I did not die, so please don't cry; I AM HOME!
Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American Soldier. One died for your soul, the other died for your freedom. In loving memory of my cousin, PFC Eric Woods Combat Medic ~ KIA Tal 'Afar, Iraq December 6, 1978 - July 9, 2005
