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 that 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.

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.
