"When Tomorrow Starts Without Me"

"When tomorrow starts without me, And I am not there to see,
If the sun should rise and 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 loved me, As much as I loved you,
And each time that you think of me, I know you’ll miss me to,
But when tomorrow starts without me, Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name, And took me by the hand,
And 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 good-bye and kiss you, And maybe see you smile,
But then I finally realize, That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories, Would take the place of me,
And when I thought of all the worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you and when I did, My heart was filled with sorrow,
But when I walked through Heaven’s gates, I felt so much at home,
When 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 is past, But here life starts anew”.
