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