Life and death. The two most basic components of every living person and thing on earth. It was once said that the two most certain things in life are death and taxes. Each one of us will pass on from this world someday and we all probably know of someone who has left us.
Unfortunately, there are times when our loved ones leave us suddenly. We never had the chance to say good-bye and share our final thoughts with them.
I came across the following poem in a paper a few years ago and decided to share with it with you today. I hope that it may bring you a measure of peace and comfort…or please feel free to share it with someone who you may think need it.
When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand
The angel 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,
For God looked down, smiled at me,
And told me “Welcome Home.”
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.
