Promise Yourself

January 21, 2011

Promise Yourself



Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can
disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to
every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel like there is
something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your
optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best,
and expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on the
greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give
every living person you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, and too
strong for fear, and to happy to permit the
presence of trouble.
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,
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
things 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 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 relive yesterday, just even for a while,
I’d say goodbye and kiss you, and maybe
see you smile.
But then I fully realized, that 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, and
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 faithful, so trusting 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’re free,
So won’t you take my hand now 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.

  1. Can I just say what a relief to find somebody who really knows what theyre talking about over a internet. You really know how to bring an dilemma to light and make it important. Additional people need to read this and realize this side on the story. I cant believe youre not a lot more popular due to the fact you definitely have the gift.
