BHR Hollywood Reports..........Though he's in better spirits now, Tracy Morgan wasn't feeling optimistic after his traumatic 2014 car accident.

He worried that the wreck would cause him to "lose my funny," he told Reports.

"I said, 'If my funny ever went away, I'd die,'" the comedian said. "And I thought I was going to die for a long time. My thoughts — I was in a very dark place. I was sitting right here, contemplating suicide. I couldn't walk."

The June 2014 accident left Morgan in a coma for eight days, and killed his friend and fellow comedian James McNair. During his time in the hospital, Morgan said, he visited heaven, where he encountered his father.

“He was the one who said, ‘Go home, son. I ain’t ready for you yet,’ ” he told the magazine. “I don’t think I cheated death. I think this was the plan. My room wasn’t ready.”

According to Morgan, this was because he still had plenty of unfinished business left among the living.

The 30 Rock star — who's currently racking up standup gigs and has a new FX show in the works with Jordan Peele — joked that he didn't go up to heaven because he thought the white light "was the police." He added more seriously that his late father is the reason he's still here.

"He was the one who said, 'Go home, son. I ain't ready for you yet,' " Morgan said. "I don't think I cheated death. I think this was the plan. My room wasn't ready."
