Do you wonder when you’re hurting
If it’s really all worthwhile
All that loving, caring, sharing
Just hoping for a little smile.
When you watch a loved one suffer
In constant pain, confusion too
Thinking back to all the good times
Knowing there’s nothing you can do.
Perhaps it’s better like a snail
To build a rock hard shell
To keep the pain and suffering out
But no, for we should tell
Our dear ones how we feel
To show we love and care
And even when they sometimes suffer
They know, for them you’re always there.
For if the clocks could turn back time
To good old days gone by
Wouldn’t life be so much better
No wonder we feel we want to cry.
