~ When Tomorrow Starts Without Me ~
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 you wouldn't cry, the way you did today, while thinking of the many things we did not get to say. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you. Each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too. When tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, that an angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand. The angel said my place was ready, in heaven far above, and that I would have to leave behind all those I dearly love. So when tomorrow starts without me, do not think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, Remember I'm right here in your heart..
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven. Matthew 5:16
