Helpful Thinking

How do you say goodbye when there’s still so much left say,
with your thoughts and dreams on overload the words get in the way.
When someone special touches you like no one has before,
then something takes them far away and leaves you wanting more.
Your mind will make this hard on you and you wont understand,
when your broken hearts in pieces and its more than you can stand.
With depression closing in on you and sadness in your eyes,
you feel your world is closing in and clouding up your skies.
It's then you need to find the strength to look the other way,
be thankful for the time you shared and memories you made.
Our entire lives are filled with people that we choose to love,
from neighbors, friends and relatives to the good lord up above.
So if you have to say goodbye to someone that you miss,
no matter how it hurts inside you must remember this.
Your mind can change the mood your in as fast as you can blink,
so if hurts so bad inside just change the way you think.

    Its advice suggests moving on and enduring the feeling of missing anyone dear to you.
