Chad Smith

When tomorrow starts without me
And Iím not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me:

I wish so much you wouldnít cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didnít get to say.

I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time you think of me,
I know youíll 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,

And said my place was ready,
In heaven far above,
And that Iíd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye
For all my life, Iíd always thought,
I didnít want to die.

I had so much to live for,
So much left to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays,
The good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for awhile,
Iíd say good-bye and kiss you,
And maybe see you smile.

But then I fully realized,
That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
Would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things,
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through Heavenís gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From his great golden throne,

He said, "This is eternity,
And all Iíve promised you.
Today your life on earth is past,
But here life starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each dayís the same way,
Thereís no longing for the past.

You have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true.
Though there were times
You did some things
You knew you shouldnít do.

But you have been forgiven,
And now at last youíre free.
So wonít you come and take my hand
And share my life with me?"

So when tomorrow starts without me,
Donít think weíre far apart,
For every time you think of me,
Iím right here in your heart.

Chad and his family.

"We love and miss you!"
