Epitaph of Luella Ables

Luella Ables died recently at the age of sixty six. Her funeral services were held this week 8/25/2000. As her relations went through her belongings they found this writing. It speaks for itself.

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 you wouldn't cry..
they 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 you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me,
please try to understand..
an angel came and called my name
and took me by the hand.

He said my place was ready..
in Heaven far above,
but I would 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 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,
I thought...just for a while..
I'd say goodbye and kiss you
and maybe see you smile.

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

And when I think of worldly things,
that I would miss tomorrow..
I think of you, and when I do,
my heart is filled with sorrow.

But as I walked through Heavens gates,
I felt so much at home,
as God looked down and smiled at me,
from His Great Golden Throne.

He said "This is Eternity
and all I've Promised You"
Today life on earth is past..
But here it starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
and since each day is the same day,
there's no longing for the past.

But you have been so faithful,
so trusting, and so true..
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 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 there in your Heart.

Note:

I've typed this in as it was written even though I don't particularly understand the use of punctuation. I've noted that in some 'soul filled' writings, a unique quirk sometimes appears in the arbitrary use of capital letters. Ignoring the surrounding words and focusing only on the capitalization's, sometimes brings unique messaging.
