If Tomorrow


IF TOMORROW

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 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 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 turn 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 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 just one day, even for awhile,
I’d say “Good-Bye” and kiss you and maybe see a smile.

But then I fully realize, 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 Heavenly 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 there in your Heart!!
