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. By Debra Ryals
