    When Tomorrow Starts Without Me - Author Unknown
    When tomorrow starts without me and I'm not there to see;
    The sun will rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me.
    I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today,
    Remembering how I'd lay my head, In your lap that special way.
    I know how much you love me, as much as I love you.
    And each time that 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 petted me with her hand.
    She said my place was ready in Heaven far above,
    And that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love.
    But, as I turned to heel away, a tear fell from my eye,
    For all my life I never thought, that I would have to die.
    I had so much to live for, so many sits and downs to do,
    It seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.
    I thought about our lives together, I know you must be sad,
    I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.
    Remember how I'd nudge your hand, and poke you with my nose?
    The frisbee I would gladly chase, the bad guy, I'd "bark and hold".
    If I could relive yesterday, just even for awhile,
    I'd wag my tail and kiss you, just so I could see you smile.
    But then I fully realized, that this could never be;
    For emptiness and memories, will take the place of me.
    And when I thought of treats and toys, I might miss come tomorrow,
    I thought of you and when I did, my dog-heart filled with sorrow.
    But then I walked through Heaven's gate, and felt so much at home;
    As God looked down and smiled at me, from His beautiful golden throne.
    He said, "This is eternity, And now we welcome you,
    Today your life on earth is past, But here it starts anew.
    I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last;
    For you see, each dayís the same day, there's no longing for the past.
    Now you have been so faithful, so trusting, loyal and true;
    Though there were times you did things, you knew you shouldn't do.
    But good dogs are forgiven, and now at last you're free;
    So won't you sit here by my side, and wait right here 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 there, in your heart.

    If I could only tell you
    I havenít really gone
    I shall be there always
    playing in the sun

    Do not cry or mourn me
    because I'm by your side
    Through life's darkest moments
    now your tears youíve dried

    We sailed lifeís stream together
    Had so much fun too
    Tell me what would I have done
    If I hadnít lived with you

    Please oh please donít mourn me
    Iíll love you till the end
    Then Iíll meet you all in Heaven
    Not goodbye! --- your dearest friend xx

    A lovely poem!! Both are truly wonderful! When I lost my lab Emma, i received the book, I believe called Dog Heaven. It was greatly needed after I lost both parents and then my lab, Emma. Anyway, I passed the book on to our neighbor with a note after they lost Belle. And she has passed it on with a note to another friend, so I know it is out there helping other families. It is nice for me to know that i was not alone and the book is floating around. I am going to make sure in the future when my friends lose their pets i will add the poems along with the book. I
