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 are 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.
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.
If I could relive yesterday,
I thought, just for awhile...
I'd say goodbye and kiss you
and maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realised...
that this could never be,
for emptiness and memories...
would take the place of me.
So when tomorrow starts without me...
don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me
I am right here in your heart.
Alicea Elizabeth Goveia

Forever missed by her Mummy Denise,

Father Jerry, Mummy Yvonne, Uncle

Dennis, Aunty Bev, Grandad Herbie,

Grandmother Brenda, her brothers Guy,

Andy, Alvaro, Sean, Jerry-Max and Deje,

sister Dominique, Mia and many, many

other family and friends.

Eight years ago today, Alicea was killed by

an alleged drunken driver. Despite meeting
with the President, Minister of Home
Affairs, Commissioner of Police and the
Traffic Chief requesting Traffic Law
Enforcement, and new Traffic Legislation plus
one Year of Standing with MOTHERS IN BLACK, we, the family and friends of Alicea are again pleading with you to make Road Safety a priority.
Ten precious lives are
lost on our roads every month. When will YOU the "DECISION MAKERS" put an end to this senseless road carnage???
