When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
 
When tomorrow starts without me, and I
am not here to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes all
filled with tears for me.
 
I know how much you love me as much as I
love you,
And each time you think of me I know
you'll miss Me too.
 
But when tomorrow starts without me
please try to understand,
That Jesus came and called my name and
took me by the hand.
 
He said my place is ready in heaven far
above,
And that I have to leave behind all those I
dearly love.
 
But as I turned to walk away a tear fell
from my eye,
For all my life I'd always thought it wasn't
my time to die.
 
I had so much to live for and so much yet
to do,
It seems 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 have stayed for just a little 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.
 
And when I thought of  worldly things that
I'd miss tomorrow,
I thought of you and when I did my heart
was filled with sorrow.
 
But when I walked through Heaven's Gate
and felt so much at home,
As 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 it
starts anew.
 
I promise no tomorrow but today will
always last,
And since each day's the same here there's
no longing for the past."
 
So when tomorrow starts without me don't
think we're far apart,
For everytime you think of me
I'm right here in your heart.
