(Inspired by Son's accident & Dad's Alzhiemer)
When my son was almost four, he found a pocket knife on the floor
The emergency doc said with a sigh, pray he won't loose his eye.
Even though it's been many years, I can still feel those tears
When I held my son's little hand, trying to understand.
Just wondering why, Just wondering why
Lord I know you are here, and I know that you care
I'm down on my knees, Lord show me please
Or I'll always be, ... just wondering why. (2x to Bridge)
When my dad was 60 years old, his memory began to fold
It just did not seem fair, my dad's mind wasn't there
There was nothing I could do, the doctors tried - everything they knew
I searched for a reason why, as time went by.
Lord, I know some things happen, because it's in your plan
Sometimes we pay for our sins, or we are at the mercy of nature's hand.
