God, Where Are You?

God, who are you?
Or rather where are you?
Many people are talking about you
Saying you are the one who is always there
But I have searched and never found
The one who is claimed to be always there.

People in time of sorrow
I always hear say,
God will help
The lord will never abandon
But here I am abandoned and lost
And I say to myself
Where is that God always there?

Many claim you are a friend
But yet I fear, like many of my friends
You are going to desert me
Leaving me alone and desolate
Some people try to reassure
That you will always be there
But if you are to be my friend I implore,
I do not want you to be there for me
I want you to be always with me.
