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
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.
When tomorrow starts without me,
Don’t think were far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I’m right there in your heart.
