If tomorrow dawns and I am gone|
Then ever so softly lift your eyes on high,
For I won't be laying there within the grave
But flying free beyond the sky.
For you can't stay within and weep for me
But rise gently up on your feet,
To go search for someone all alone
For them it is to weep.
With all the comfort you will know
That you miraculously find within your grief,
Then give, for pouring of that love
Will be your sure relief.
As the sun shines bright around you
Go now and give that love away,
From all the joy we knew together
Stored up from all we prayed.
Though you may forget details of the treasured moments
They made up your loving heart,
All the nourishment daily in God's goodness
For the time when we would part.
And when every day is done
As you stop to gaze up at the stars,
Pray for everyone we loved together
While I delight in our Lord Jesus from afar.
For every moment I am gone
Unable to hold you close once more,
Reach out to touch another
With all we lived, that was worth the living for.
Don't cry too long that I am gone
Just smile for me and carry on,
Go, bravely with the love we shared
And sing with every step..our song.

Now is your time of grief
but I will see you again and you will rejoice
and no-one will take away your joy
