A Letter from Heaven
When tomorrow starts without me,
and I'm not here to see, If the sun should rise and find your eyes, 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 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 there in your heart
