When Tomorrow Starts Without Me (By David M Romano)

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 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 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

He said this Is eternity
And all I promised you
Today your life on earth is done
But here it starts anew

I promise no tomorrow
For today will always last
And since each day’s the exact same way
There is no longing for the past

So when tomorrow starts without me
Do not think we’re apart
For every time you think of me
Remember I’m right here in your heart


I’ve listened to this nearly every day since my husband died eight months ago and it brings me great comfort, it’s as if my husband is talking to me

Love listening to this. I came across it while arranging my dearest husband’s funeral in December 2020. Ironically the voice sounds so much like my husband’s that it was both comforting & upsetting initially. However, I often listen to it when I want to feel close to him. He wrote/published poetry as a hobby.
Thanks for posting it as I’m sure it will bring comfort to many others.

After 61 weeks since I lost Alan, I thought my daily tears were finally coming to an end, but after listening to this I’m crying again.
I miss him so much.
