Elvert Ruffin

November 26, 1926 ~ October 1, 2021 (age 94)


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 with out 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 a new. I promise 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 here in your heart.
