Don’t Be Sad When I Die

When tomorrow starts without me,

and I’m not there to comfort you,

please know that I still love you,

’cause I know you love me too.

When tomorrow starts without me

and you feel lost and blue,

I hope these words I’ve written

will help to see you through.

Someday your pain will ease,

sadness replaced by fond memories.

Come tomorrow you will hear

I love you whispered on the breeze.

When tomorrow starts without me

’cause God has called me home,

I turn, blowing a kiss for thee,

sad that you may feel alone.

I will miss you tomorrow.

As I take one last glimpse,

a tear falls from my cheek.

I’ll be going home.

And tomorrow will start without me.
