i remember as a little girl,
i was taught, to put my trust in you,
to believe that through all the pain,
you had a reason for the things you did.

when daddy died, i cried to you,
tears that only a little girl could cry,
full of confusion,and anger,
that cut deep into my soul.

i felt like i could die,
lying cold in my bed,
accompanied by a fiant whisper,
that pleaded from deep inside,
for you to please love me,
and you were no where to be found.

they ask me where my faith has gone,
but where exactley over the years,
did you hide your faith in me?
still each time i feel my soul slipping,
i pray to you,
with those same little girl tears,
that seem to have become a pattern,
throughout my life.

i was raised to believe that you would protect me,
from all the pain in life,
and ive come to wonder,
if it was just ment to be,
an introduction to the art of wishful thinking,
a reminder that the deepest promises can still be broken.

when life held no meaning,
where were you?
when i was still believing,
where were you?
when i died along with my father,
and resented my own mother,
where were you?
i prayed for someones love,
and searched the heavens above,
to come home empty handed,
my tears and hope forever stranded,
and i wonder, my god, where were you?

Sometimes we have to look real deep and also get to know ourselves before we can know what God has to offer. I hope your path leads to his door in the near future.
