A Letter from Heaven

When tomorrow starts without me

And I am 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.

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.
