I Was Not Afraid

Gathered ‘round,
My friends held my hands
And sang me a song,
While I still had a spark in my eye
And knew who they were...
And then, by my choice,
They watched as I drew my last breath,
And exhaled with me...
You see, I am free now,
The pain and worry gone ~
And they’ll remember me
In a happy light,
Instead of watching me wither.
I was not afraid,
Because my friends were near.
