When tomorrow starts without me,
And I’m not here to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
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 Jesus 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.
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.
