When Is The Time

When is the time to be quiet
Does it present itself when you need
At times you know to respect it
Other times you can’t quite succeed.

To be quiet, you have to feel it
That it is the right thing to do
Not always easy
But at times it compels you.

I know I can’t always do it
Quiet is not in my soul
I want to be there to help you
When I can’t, I just don’t feel whole.

I’ll try to hold my emotions
To keep quiet while knowing the pain
I’ll bite my tongue and not bother
In hopes that your trust I will gain.
