A poem i found for my darling pauline

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

By David M. Romano
When tomorrow starts without me and I am not here to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me
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 Jesus came and called my name and took me by the hand.
He said my place is ready in heaven far above
And that I 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 it wasn’t my time to die.
I had so much to live for and so much yet to do
It seems 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 have stayed for just a little while
I’d say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realize that this could never be
For emptiness and memories would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things that I’d miss come tomorrow
I thought of you and when I did my heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through Heaven’s gate and felt so much at home
As 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 it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow but today will always last
And since each day’s the same here there’s no longing for the past.
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.

Casey, that is a beautiful poem, thanks for sharing. xxx

Thankyou Susie123 it makes me cry everytime I read it all I have done is cry ever since pauline passed I think it is a beautiful poem for anyone who has lost their soulmate

Casey, crying is a natural process and your loss is still very new for you. Yes, your heart is broken and life will feel empty. This horrible thing called grieving is like nothing else and everyone on this site knows how terrible it feels and we are always here for you. Look after yourself because you will be very vulnerable both physical and mentally. Sxx

Susie123 thankyou it is helping talking to people on here especially as they understand how I am feeling to be honest its all I have apart from my pets I’m all alone now

I wrote this shortly after my husband. It was to tell him how much I love him and How he will be missed.

Stinger my love

Twenty-five years ago i felt the sting of your voice
My heart could not help but rejoice,
Deep in my soul I knew you were the one
Who could bring me from darkness into the sun.

Not a day goes by that I don’t feel your arms
Gently but firmly they keep me from harm
For you my love I had so much pride
Then my heart stopped the day that you died.

How do I go on without you here
Holding me up always keeping me near,
For you my love I will carry on
Until the day God brings me home.

@Audrey-Rose thankyou that poem is beautiful I am very sorry for your loss

Audrey-Rose, that is not only beautiful but you have written everything I would love to have said. To late now but I do hope he’s there listening to my thoughts. Thank you so much xxx

Here is a secret, it’s not to late to tell him what you want to say. As long as there is breath in your body, start talking to him. write the thoughts down for you to re-read as time goes by. Trust me, it brings comfort.

Thank you for appreciating my little poem to my husband. xxx
