I just Don't Know Why
This is a poem that someone gave me when my husband and I lost our son on 5/3/03 at only 9 hours and 19 minutes old.
WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME
When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see;
If the sun should rise & find your eyes,
all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
Whiile thinking of the many things,
We didn't get to do or say.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me 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,
And said my place was reaady,
In heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind,
All those I dearly love.
So 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.
I do not know the original authors name. I just hope it will bring someone out there the comfort that it has brought me when the days just get too hard to face.
