When tomorrow starts without you and you are not here to see,
If the sun should rise and find our eyes are filled with tears for you. I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,
Thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.
I know how much you loved us as much as we loved you,
And each time that you think of us I know you will miss us too.
But when tomorrow starts without you, please know we understand,
That an angel come and called your name and took you by the hand,
And said your place was ready in heaven far above,
And by the grace of God you had to leave everyone you loved.

“We love you Papa. You will be missed.”
