    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 as I turned to walk away
    A 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 for,
    So much yet to do.
    It seemed almost impossible
    That I could be leaving you.
    I thought of all the yesterdays,
    The good ones and the bad.
    I thought of all the love we’ve shared
    And all the fun we had.

    If I could only relive yesterday
    Just even for a 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
    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 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,
    But today will always last.
    And since each day’s the same day
    There’s no longing for the past.

    But 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 please take my hand
    And share your life with me?”
    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.

    I am sorry to hear about your loss. God has promised a time very soon when mourning and outcry and pain will be no more. The former things will have passed away. (Rev 21:4) and the hour is coming, in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear Jesus’ voice and come out. (John 5:28,29) Please let these promises bring you additional comfort.
