and I am 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 that you think of me, I know you will 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,
He said that I 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, it wasn’t my time die.
I had so much to live for, so much yet to do,
It almost seemed 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 stayed for just 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 come 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 have 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 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.
