If tomorrrow starts without me

If tomorrow starts without me, and
I’m not here to see,
If the sun should rise you find your
eyes all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things
we didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me, as
much as I love you
And each time that you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without
me please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my
name and took me by the hand.
He said my place was ready, in
heaven far above
And that I’d have to leave behind
all those I dearly love.
But as I turned and walked away a
tear fell from my eye.
For all my life I’d always thought, I
didn’t want to die.
I had so much to live for, so much
left yet to do.
It seemed almost impossible that I
was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays the
good ones and the bad.
I thought of all the love we shared,
and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, just even
for a while,
I’d say goodbye and kiss you and
maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized that this
could never be,
For emptiness and memories would
take the place of me.
When I thought of worldly things I
might miss come tomorrow
I thought of you and when I did my
heart was filled with sorrow.
When I walked through heavens
gates I felt so much at home.
God looked down and smiled at me
from his great golden throne
He said, “This is eternity and all
I’ve promised you”
Today your life on earth has passed
but here life starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow, but today
will always last
And since each day is the same
there’s no longing for the past.
You have been so faithful so
trusting and so true.
Though there were times you did
some things you knew you
shouldn’t do.
You have been forgiven and now at
last you’re free.
So won’t you come and take my
hand and share my life with me?
So when tomorrow starts with out
me don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me, I’m
right here in your heart.
