There was ever only one silence
that cracked the sky
There was ever only one so wretched cry
one cosmic shout
with no reply

Why forsaken?
Why alone?

God turned his back that day
the echoing dark in his wake
- as The Light slipped away.

To anyone who has ever asked "Why me?", "Where are you Lord?" Know this - God turned away from his own Son so that he wouldn't ever have to turn his back on you.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. 19This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."
John 3:16 - 21

This reminds me of Nichole Nordeman's "Why" Very moving.

Thanks for the great spin on the times we ask "why me?"
