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 all filled with tears for me
I wish you wouldn’t cry the way you did today
While thinking of the many things we did not get to say
I know how much you love me as much as I love you
Each time that you think of me I know you will miss me too
When tomorrow starts with out 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.
