Eulogy For My Son Leon

We are all here to celebrate Leon's Life.

And throughout this Celebration we must not forget that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is at the helm.

Even in our grief I know he is here guiding, helping us especially in our time of need.

Recently a few lines were placed in my hands and I would like to share them with you, because it says so much of yesterday, today and tomorrow.


When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

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,
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, and each time
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 took me by the hand,
and 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 walk away a tear fell from my eye,
For all my life, I'd always thought I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for and so much yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you,
I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we've had,
If I could relive yesterday, I thought just for a while,
I'd say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile,
But then I fully realised that this could never be,
For emptiness and memories would take the place of me,
And when I thought of worldly things that I'd miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow,
But when God looked down and smiled at me, from his great golden
He said, 'this is Eternity and all I've promised you,
Today for life in earth is past but here it starts anew,
I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last,
And since each day's the same day, there's no longing for the past,
But you have been so thoughtful, so trusty and so true,
Though there were times you did some things you know you
shouldn't do,
But you have been forgiven and now at last you are free,
So won't you take my hand and share my life 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 here in your heart.
