When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
by David M Romano
When tomorrow starts without me
And Iím not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldnít cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things
We didnít 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 youíll 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 Iíd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.
But when I walked through heavenís gates
I felt so much at home,
When God looked down and smiled at me
From His great golden throne.
He said ďThis is eternity
And all Iíve promised youĒ,
Today for life on earth is past
But here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow
For today will always last,
And since each dayís the same way
Thereís no longing for the past.
So when tomorrow starts without me
Donít think weíre far apart,
For every time you think of me
Iím right here in your heart.
