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

 

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 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 past

But here it starts anew.

 

I promise no tomorrow

For today will always last,

And since each day's the same way

There's no longing for the past.

 

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.
