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.
