|In Loving Memory of Barry Lee Allen From Springfield, VA

Barry's bike was a 1978 FLH full dressed bike

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path of 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 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 too brief.
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your head and share with me.
God wanted me now, He set me free.
