When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me and I'm 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 love me, as much as I love you,
and each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too.
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 up above,
and that I would have to leave behind all those I truly love.
But as I turned to walk 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 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 awhile,
I'd say goodbye and kiss you, and maybe see you smile.
But then I realized, that this could never be.
For emptiness and memories, would take the place of me.
But when I think of worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow.
I thought of you, and when I did my heart was full of 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 for life on Earth is passed, and here it starts a new.
But you have been so faithful, so trusting and so true.
Though there were times you did things you knew you shouldn't do.
But you have been forgiven and now at last you're free,
so won't you take my hand, and share my life with me.
So when tomorrow starts without me don't think we're far apart,
for every time you think of me, I'm right here in your heart.
