When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

 When tomorrow starts without me
 Please try to understand
That an angel came and called my name
And took me by the hand

The angel said my place was ready
In heaven far above
And That I would have to leave behind
All those I Dearly Love

But When I walked through Heaven’s Gates
I felt so much at home
When GOD looked down and smiled at me
From His golden throne

He said This Is Eternity
And All I promised you
Today for life on earth is done
But Here it starts anew

I promise no tomorrow
For today will always last
And Since each day’s the exact same way
There is no longing for the past

So When Tomorrow starts without me
Do not think we’re apart
For every time you think of me
Remember I’m right here in your heart

Dad, I am often told I am just like you.
I am honored beyond measure if that is true.
You were the best example of what a man should be.
I am overwhelmed that someone would say that of me.

I never told you enough, how proud I am to be called your daughter,
Now that you are gone, I want to tell everyone.
You gave me much more than a name,
Someday, I hope my kids say the same.

Until we meet again,
