When Tomorrow Starts Without Me - by David M. Romano
When tomorrow starts without me and I'm not here to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes are 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 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 gate 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 promised you
Today your 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
