Laments of My Soul

The laments of my soul
Are apparently too much to bear
My pain is private pain
Because no one seems to care

They say that God feels my pain
Then why doesn't he take it away
Doesn't he worry
That my faith is going astray

All areas of my life are being torn apart
everything's ripping at the seams
I mourn each and every day
For the loss of my once reachable dreams

My dreams of a happy future
Of a family so perfect
Now every time I put on a smile
My happiness is just counterfeit

Doesn't God want me to be happy
To find joy in my life
Now all joy does is mock me
And cause me so much strife

Everyone else is laughing
So why can't I
Water falls from my eyes
But my soul's river has run dirt dry
