When Tomorrow Starts Without Me - Unknown





I don't really have anything really to post today, so I decided to share this poem that Reece shared on her Facebook. I adore this poem. 


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 never got 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
An angel came and called my name and took me by the hand,
He 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 of 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 was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad.
I thought of all the love we shared, and how much fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while,
I'd say goodbye, and kiss your lips 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 wordly 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 your life on Earth is past, but here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last,
And since each day is the same day, there's no longing for the past.
But you have been so faithful, so trusting and so true,
Though there were some times you did some things you shouldn't do.

But you have been forgiven, and now at last you're free,
So come and take me by the hand, and share my 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 there - in your Heart..
