(Crystal’s mommy was kind enough to ask me to read this at Crystal’s memorial…..)
When 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.
The angel said my place was ready,
In Heaven so far above
And that I’d have to leave behind
All those I so dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye,
For all my life I always thought,
I didn’t want to die.
I had so much to live for,
So much 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.
But when I walked through Heavens’ 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 for life on each is past
But here it starts anew.
I Promise no tomorrow’s,
But today will always last,
And since each days the same day,
There’s no longing for the past.
But you have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true.
Thought 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 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!
