If I should die tomorrow

without the chance to say goodbye

I hope that you will smile

through the tears I know you'll cry.

Remember life is fleeting

and we all must someday die

but heaven's all around us

It's not in some distant sky.

So when you see a rainbow,

or you hear a whippoorwill,

or you see a shooting star

know that I am with you still.

When you hear a distant melody

coming from the skies,

I know that you will see me

If you simply close your eyes.

For I have just gone home

to the place I lived before,

but I promise I will watch for you

when you come through heaven's door.
