When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
Author Unknown
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
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.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
And said my place was ready
In heaven far above
And that I'd 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 great golden throne.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
He said "This is eternity
And all I've promised you"
Today for life on earth is past
But here it starts anew. "
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
I promise no tomorrow!
For today will always last
And since each day's the same way
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.

I'm an angel now
Author Unknown

One night I cried to Jesus as I sat beneath the tree,
I looked into the open sky and hoped He'd answer me.

I'm lost, dear Lord, I've traveled far, but I still seem to roam,
Please light the way and lead me, Lord; I need to get back home.

I told Him of my burdens and of the sadness in my heart,
That from His gracious love I'd never felt so far apart.

Why did you take my child, Lord? I cannot understand!

I am angry, Lord, I am missing her. I am drowning in my sorrow,
Please help to heal my yesterday and face each new tomorrow.

It was then I heard her gentle voice and felt her presence near,
How I wanted to hold her as I cried another tear.

She said, "Mommy I'm an angel now, my spirit will be free,
I am an angel now in Heaven, so please don't cry for me.

I was chosen by the Lord above and now I am in His care,
When you need me look inside your heart, I promise to be there.

No one can ever take away our bond with one another,
For I will always be your precious child, as you will always be my mother.

So if you cannot find your way or the road to home seems far,
Just look up to the heavens and I will be your guiding star."

She said, "Mommy, I'm an angel now, my spirit will be free,
I'm an angel now in heaven, no need to cry for me.
