Then they ask me, but why?
And my mind wanders

to the times of trouble
to the days when my fate lay in His hands
and when I asked, He answered.

He granted my wishes
washed away my tears
listened to my sorrows.

When no one else understood
He was there.

When no one else could help
He was there.

My friend.

I fall away from Him
but still He takes me back.

He forgives my sins
for the many times I have.
He stands by me
in my days of happiness.

He shines His smile on me
He uplifts my heart
and gives me reason to live.

Then they ask me, but why?
and my mind wanders.
