If My Tomorrow Ends Today

If my tomorrow ends today, please make a smile for me.
Promise, I will be fine so don't you cry because of me.
If my tomorrow ends today, please hear what I've got to say.
'Cause when I die we never know if we will meet someday.
I love you and it's true, maybe not in a way you want me to.
But you can hurt and make me bleed because I care like I always do.
You might not be my life, but life is good with you.
Your head, your heart, your gentle hand, it makes me long for you.
If my tomorrow ends right here, I thank you very much.
You are so dear to me that I can't wish for more than such.
If I can't see tomorrow that you will get to see,
You must know that life is beautiful even without me.
If you will live tomorrow and I will not be there to accompany you,
'Cause below the ground I have my corpse, my memory is with you.
I know nothing what lies ahead but I'm happy I have lived,
Because we had moments together but now I need to leave.
Live your life meaningfully though I'm not there to see.
Believe that I'll be at rest and will be happy as I can be.
If my tomorrow ends right now, I'm sorry for what I did and didn't do.
I will miss you somewhere out there and maybe you'll miss me too.
God alone knows what to do with the life He had for us.
He knows when to make us laugh and be sad for more than hours.
God created all of us with a mission in each heart.
That when we're all done with it like a work of art,
He wants us to be with Him to infinity and beyond—
To His home where we belong and where we are all bound.
If my tomorrow ends today but you are here to stay,
Just let me live there in your heart and everything will be okay.
