Should you think when you think too much
One of the hardest things to do is forget
When you have that quiet time all alone
How do you not think when the time is spent.
Knowing you have family that is facing so much
Where each day seems so much closer to the end
It is not always easy to smile and keep upbeat
A mixture of concern and love you must blend.
Having a friend that is facing so much in life
Makes for feelings that are close to my heart
Torn between giving freedom and wanting to hold
Maybe it is just too much right from the start.
When your own heart is so broken and yet yearning
How do you balance thought with just rushing ahead
Knowing what you feel and remembering past pain
Sometimes you think and must step back instead.
