" All The Small Pieces "
 
These are earlier work... I thought I would share. Putting thought to things will help you in the long run... as in picking up all the small pieces so you can re-assemble your life.. every little piece counts in the end..


Today

Today, yesterday, tomorrow
I am blessed for the love you poured over me,
It keeps me alive, It keeps me sane

Yesterday, tomorrow, today
Glimmers in my heart as the best of .
Everything that life has to offer

Tomorrow, today, yesterday
I only hope to make you proud of the way
I have raised our children

Leaving was not your choice
Yesterday Today or Tomorrow
Leaving was not mine either

Today . is what it is
Yesterday is real it is my treasure
Tomorrow . is unknown






When Tomorrow Starts Without Me



When tomorrow starts without me,
and I'm not there to see;
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;

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
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
and so much 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 shared
and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday,
I thought, just for a while,
I'd say goodbye and kiss you
and maybe you would 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
that I'd 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 for life on Earth is past
but here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
but today will always last,
and since each day's the same day,
there's no longing for the past.
But you have been so faithful,
so trusting and 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 take my hand
and share my life with me."

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 wish you Hope and Peace in your Journey..
