FUNERAL POEM: "When Tomorrow Starts Without Me"


When 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.
When tomorrow starts without me,
please try to understand,
that an angel came and called my name
and took me by the hand.

It 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 life I'd always thought
I didn't want to die.

I had so much to live for,
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.

If I could relive yesterday,just even for awhile,
I'd say goodbye 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 come tomorrow, I thought
of you, and when I did, my heart was
filled with sorrow.

When I walked through Heaven's gates
I felt so much at home.
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 it starts anew,
I promise no tomorrow
but today will always last.

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.
