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

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 you think of me,

I know you'll miss me too;

but when tomorrow starts without me,

please try to understand

that Jesus 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.

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.
