Thomas E. Reid, When tomorrow comes without me, and I'm not here to see,
As the sun begins to rise, and finds your eyes weeping lonely tears for me, I wish
you wouldn't cry - the way you did today, I'm thinking of the many things
we never got to say. I know how much You Love me… As much as I Love You…
Please try and understand, an Angel appeared before me and said Tom it's time for you to go.
As I turned to walk away, my eyes they filled with tears; I had to leave behind the
things I'd come to love dearly over all these 74 years. For all my life I knew
I didn't want to die I had so much to live for and a lot more left to do and it seemed
almost impossible that I was leaving you…
If I could relive yesterday just even for a while, I'd say goodbye then hug you until I saw you smile. But then I realized this could never be, cause emptiness and memories have taken the place of me.
When I thought of all those things I will miss come tomorrow, I thought of ALL of
you and my heart filled with sorrow… As I walked along life's path toward those
Heavenly Gates I was overwhelmed with joy when I saw my mother peaking
behind that gate! Calling out her name I ran as fast as I could, reaching her up high
and feeling so good. I paused for a moment as GOD looked upon me from that
golden thrown, He said, come in son and welcome home; I saw your pain and
suffering there will be no more, I give you eternal life forever more…
So when tomorrow starts without me, celebrate with me, I'll be right there
in your heart every time you think of me!
