If Tomorrow Starts without Me: For Tuntufye Mwakasaka a.k.a Mzee Mshana

Hi, This Poem is not mine, I just found it somewhere in the web about five years PAST now. The issue is, ever since i saw and read it, it has always been new to me and precious one. Today, I dedicate it to my Loving Uncle; Tuntufye Julius Mwakasaka 2002-2010 who wished could live, grow and harvest what he has always wanted to achieve. He passed away march 2010 suffering from...THE never told disease but he just swelled the whole body, it was not the kidney failure ( It was proved not Kidney failure) but the fact is...Tuntufye; the hero and the notorious boy is no longer with me. I love you, We tried to save your life, you know how much your Mom Struggled for your dearly life. We real love and miss you. We shall meet in Heaven I am sure.

We loved you more than you could have think, Alice and Tunosye never stop mentioned you, you never deserved this pre-mature death. Tunakupenda saaaana

I dont have any special words to tell, but beleive that, We still LOVE you and pray for you everyday, You were an Angel sent to us from Heaven, You were a ROSE brought to Us by God himself but you were the GOLd for you will never grow old in our Hearts and feelings.

We Love you Boy

Yours Uncle

If Tomorrow Starts Without Me
Author believed to be
David Romano

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 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 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,
So much left yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays
The good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
and all the fun we had

If I could re-live yesterday
Just even for a while,
I'd say good-bye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile.

But then I fully realized,
That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things,
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.

But 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 your life on earth is past,
But here life starts anew

I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day's the same way
There's no longing for the past.

You have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true.
Though there were times
You did some things
You knew you shouldn't do.

But you have been forgiven
And now at last you're free.
So won't you come and 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.
