poem - "If Tomorrow Starts Without Me"


Recommended Posts

I find comfort in poems and I wanted to share this one with all of you who have lost a loved one......

If Tomorrow Starts Without Me

"If 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 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

So much left 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 that we shared

And all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday

Just even for a while,

I'd say good-bye and kiss you

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 worldly things

I might miss some 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 life starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow

But today will always last,

And since each day is 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."
