|When Tomorrow Starts|
|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 don't get to say
I know how much you love me,
I know you'll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That 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 to walk away,
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 fore,
So much left yet to do
It seemed almost impossible
That I was leaving you
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 fully realized,
That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
Would take the place of me
And when I thought of worldy 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 smailed 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.
I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day's the same way
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.
But 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 withou me,
Don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here, in your heart."
