When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
by David M Romano
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.
