Last night I spoke with God.
Not about the joy life brings.
I said, "I love you, I love you not,
Why am I in such pain?"
He said, "my dear child,
I love you so,
But your happiness stops sometimes.
It's the hardships I give, and to you I bring,
To make you human, and to help you see.
Not everyday is suffering, like you say,
Did I not bring you that joyous day?
You fell in love with someone so great,
So why is it me that you hate?"
"God I do not hate,
I don't understand,
Why there must be pain among man"
"My dear child, to make you see,
You must cherish the moments life brings,
I'm not one to judge, I forgive everything,
Your pain only comes when you don't believe.
I gave you the power to see right from wrong,
I'm holding your hand to guide you along
Through the darkened tunnels, I'm always there
I carry you through broken glass, when your feet are bare."
"If all you say is true,
Why do I not believe in you?
I prayed to you to stop this pain,
Why, Why, Why didn't you answer?"
"My dear child I did you see,
You just couldn't hear my answer,
Your heart has locks and you shut me out,
Which makes me believe
I can't give you help for anything
If you don't have faith in me.
So darling, my dear, have no fear,
I will give you wings,
Continue to battle the evil inside,
Please have faith in me.
Good only comes when you can see,
Not all is dark for thee,
Follow your heart for I am there,
To help you see the brighter things."
I sat down and though real hard,
Then it dawned on me,
My horrible days come and go,
But good memories always stay with me.
