Poem & A Wonderful Friend

I lost a friend from back home the day before Christmas. She was a wonderful lady just a few years older than me. She loved life and was just a fun person to be around. I'm sad that she is gone but I know that I will see her again one day. I also can't be there at her service to say goodbye but this was in the morning paper w/ her obituary per her request. I thought I would share it.



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 do each day

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 that you think of me

Please know I miss you 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

The angel said a place was ready

In heaven up above

And that I'd have to leave behind

All those I truly love

I had so much to live for

So much yet to do

It seemed almost impossible

That I was leaving you

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!
