If tomorrow starts without me…

Grief
From ExperienceProject

If 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;
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel 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.
But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye
For all my life, I’d always thought,
I didn’t want to die.
I had so much to live for, So much left 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 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’ve 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.
You have been so faithful, So trusting and so true.
Though there were times you did some things,
You knew you shouldn’t do.
But you have been forgiven,
And now at last you’re free.

So won’t you come and take my hand,
And share my life with me?

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.

    Your pain seems very fresh. I lost my boy at the age of three in 1991. The pain will fade but the memories will last a lifetime. This is a song that is very dear to me. I wish you strength through your journey.

    • Otrazhenie says:

      So sorry to hear about your loss 😦

      I like this song a lot. In every word, in every sound of this song I can feel Eric’s pain. I never lost a child myself. Can’t even imagine anything more painful than that. I wish none of my children will leave this world before me.

        you’re right: THE most horrible pain of our life is kids who pass away before their parents or grand-parents… I have 2 close friends who lost one child and even though, they’ve had another one afterwards, they think of the lost one every day…

      • Otrazhenie says:

        So sad. Nothing can replace a lost child. 😦

  2. Beautiful Otrazhenie! You can feel every emotion that can be touched within through those words. Namaste

    Very Good Thoughts. But please, break it up into smaller stanzas.

  10. I just saw this again, and I wanted to like it again. I went to a funeral today, and this made me feel better. Thank you.

    Today, it has been 18 years since my daughter died. A very long 18 years. We love her and miss her every single day. Our lives continued to grow and change without her, and we have thrived and are very happy. In our hearts you live forever, Sugarbear.

    When you posted this, it would have been my daughter’s 30th birthday, but she died in 1996 at age 12. Sorry if I’m not doing this right, but I reblogged today (and checked to ensure it stated sourced where I found it … I’d never reblogged before) with the following comment:
