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 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 didn't get 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,
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 as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,
For all my life, I'd always thought I didn't want to die.

I had so much to live for, and 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 all the fun we had;

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've promised you."
Today your life on earth is past, but here life starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow but today will always last,
And since each day's the same, there's no longing for the past.
You have been so faithful, so trusting and so true.
Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn't do.

But you have been forgiven and now at last you're free;
So won't you come and take my 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 here, in your heart.
When you remember me, SMILE.


There is no blog today or a silly picture.  Today will be in memory of Kevyn as he is buried today.  I want this family to know that they are thought about and loved so very much.  Bobbie, his mother, has been a friend of mine since middle school.  I've been thinking and praying for this family for over a week now as they have gone through such a terrible tragedy.  I love you Bobbie.
