"When Tomorrow Starts Without Me" is a poem by David M. Romano which expresses love.

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

When tomorrow starts without me
And I'm not here to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me
I wish you wouldn't cry
The way you did today
While thinking of the many things
We did not get to say
I know how much you love me
As much as I love you
Each time that you think of me
I know you will miss me too
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 my place was ready
In heaven far above
And that I would have to leave behind
All those I dearly love
But when I walked through heaven's gates
I felt so much at home
When God looked down and smiled at me
From his golden throne
He said this is eternity and all I promised you
Today for life on earth is done
But here it starts anew
I promised no tomorrow
For today will always last
And since each day's the exact same way
There is no longing for the past
So when tomorrow starts without me
Do not think we're apart
For every time you think of me
Remember I'm right in your heart
