WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME – Author Unknown
When tomorrow starts without me
And I’m not there to see,
The sun will rise and find your eyes,
All filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
The way you did today
Remembering how I’d lay my head
In your lap that special way.
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 petted me with her hand
She 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 heel away
A tear fell from my eye
For all my life I never thought
That I would have to die.
I had so much to live for
So many sits and downs to do
It seemed almost impossible
That I was leaving you.
I thought about our lives together,
I know you must be sad,
I thought of all the love we shared
And all the fun we had.
Remember how I’d nudge your hand,
And poke you with my nose
The Frisbee I would gladly chase,
The bad guy, I’d “bark and hold”.
If I could relive yesterday
Just even for a while,
I’d wag my tail and kiss you,
Just so I could see you smile
But, then I fully realized,
That this could never be;
For emptiness and memories,
Will take the place of me
And when I thought of treats and toys
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you and when I did
My dog-heart filled with sorrow
I’ve entered into eternity,
And how it welcomes you,
Today my life on earth is past,
But here it starts anew
I promise no tomorrow
But today will always last;
For you see, each day’s the same day
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 there, in your heart.
LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
