We Will Remember Them
When 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 you think of me
I’ll 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 ready in heaven far above
But I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love.
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 for today will always last
And since each day’s the same way
There’s no longing for the past.
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.
Gone are our Comrades, but we will always Remember them!
