    In Memory of my Friend

    Well, as I mentioned in my other post, my internet friend, Pauline, passed on this past Friday morning. She will be missed by her friends and family. I found this poem online, and thought I would share it in her memory.

    If Tomorrow Starts Without Me



    If 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 that you think of me,
    I know you'll miss me too.
    But if tomorrow starts without me,
    Please try to understand
    That an angel came and called my name,
    And took me by the hand.
    He said my place was ready,
    In heaven far above,
    And that I'd have to leave behind
    All those I dearly love.

    But as I turned to walk away,
    A tear fell from my eye
    For all my life, I'd always thought,
    I didn't want to die. I had so much to live for,
    So much left yet to do.
    It seemed almost impossible,
    That I was leaving you.
    I thought of all the yesterdays,
    The good ones and the bad,
    I thought of all the love we shared,
    And all the fun we had.

    If I could relive yesterday,
    Just even for a while,
    I'd say good-bye and kiss you
    And maybe see you smile.
    But then I fully realized,
    That this could never be,
    For emptiness and memories,
    Would take the place of me.

    And when I thought of worldly things,
    I might miss come tomorrow,
    I thought of you, and when I did,
    My heart was filled with sorrow.
    But when I walked through heaven's gates,
    I felt so much at home.
    When God looked down and smiled at me,
    From His great golden throne,

    He said, "This is eternity,
    And all I've promised you
    Today your life on earth is past,
    But here life starts anew.
    I promise no tomorrow,
    But today will always last,
    And since each day's the same way
    There's no longing for the past.
    You have been so faithful,
    So trusting and so true.
    Though there were times
    You did some things
    You knew you shouldn't do.
    But you have been forgiven
    And now at last you're free.
    So won't you come and take my hand
    And share my life with me?"

    So if 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 especially like this:

    So if 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.

    Oh Marie, my heart is with you at this very sad time.

    The poem is beautiful.

    I'm glad you had each other in your lives.

    Marie, I've got the HUGEST lump in my throat! My eyes are tearing up! Hugs to you Hon. I have to ask if I can email this BEAUTIFUL poem to my sister. Our mom passed away in December, after a lengthy illness. This poem is so appropriate!

    Go ahead, Observer. They are not my words, I got them off a website, so they are fair game, I guess. Here is another I got off the same site:


    If I Knew...



    If I knew it would be the last time
    that I'd see you fall asleep,
    I would tuck you in more tightly
    and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

    If I knew it would be the last time
    that I see you walk out the door,
    I would give you a hug and kiss
    call you back for one more.

    If I knew it would be the last time
    I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
    I would video tape each action and word,
    so I could play them back day after day.

    If I knew it would be the last time,
    I could spare an extra minute or two
    to stop and say "I love you," instead
    of assuming you would KNOW I do.

    If I knew it would be the last time
    I would be there to share your day,
    well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
    so I can let just this one slip away.

    For surely there's always tomorrow
    to make up for an oversight,
    and we always get a second chance
    to make everything right.

    There will always be another day
    to say our "I love yous",
    And certainly there's another chance
    to say our "Anything I can dos?"

    But just in case I might be wrong,
    and today is all I get,
    I'd like to say how much I love you
    and I hope we never forget,

    Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
    young or old alike,
    And today may be the last chance
    you get to hold your loved one tight..

    So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
    why not do it today?
    For if tomorrow never comes,
    you'll surely regret the day,

    That you didn't take that extra time
    for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
    and you were too busy to grant someone,
    what turned out to be their one last wish.

    So hold your loved ones close today,
    whisper in their ear,
    Tell them how much you love them
    and that you'll always hold them dear,

    Take time to say "I'm sorry," "please forgive me,"
    "thank you" or "it's okay."
    And if tomorrow never comes,
    you'll have no regrets about today.

    Thank you for letting me share this. I just emailed it to my family. My sister's probably bawling her eyes out, right now.
