****When Tomorrow Starts Without Me**** by: David Romano When tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not here to see If the sun should rise and find your eyes 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 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 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
