When tomorrow starts without me, and I am not here to see

If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me,

I know how much you love me as much as I love you,

And each time you think of me I know you’ll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me please try to understand,

That Jesus came and called my name and took me by the hand.

He said that my place is ready in heaven far above,

And that I 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 it wasn’t my time to die.

I have so much to live for and so much yet to do,

It seems almost impossible that I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays the good ones an the bad,

I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had.

If I could have stayed for just a while,

I’d say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.

But then I fully realize that this could never be,

For emptiness and memories would take the place of me,

And when I thought of worldly things that I would miss tomorrow,

I thought of you and when I did my heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through heaven’s gate and felt so much at home,

As God looked down and smiled 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 it starts anew.”

“I promise no tomorrow but today will always last,

And since each day’s the same here 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.
