The World Is MineOh God, Forgive Me When I WhineToday, upon a bus, I saw a girl with golden hair.I envied her, she seemed so gay, and wished I was as fair.When suddenly she rose to leave, I saw her hobbled down the aisle.She had one leg and wore a crutch. And as she passed… a smile.Oh God, forgive me when I whine.I have 2 legs, the world is mineI stopped to buy some candy. The lad who sold it had such charm.I talked with him, he seemed so glad. If I were late, it'd do no harm.And as I left, he said to me, "I thank you, you've been so kind.It's nice to talk with folks like you. You see," he said, "I'm blind." Oh God, forgive me when I whine.I have 2 eyes, the world is mine.Later while walking down the street,I saw a child with eyes of blue.He stood and watched the others play.He did not know what to do.I stopped a moment and then I said,"Why don't you join the others, dear?"He looked ahead without a word. And then I knew,he couldn't hear.Oh God, forgive me when I whine.I have 2 ears, the world is mine.With feet to take me where I'd go.With eyes to see the sunset's glow.With ears to hear what I'd know.Oh God, forgive me when I whine.I've been blessed indeed, the world is mine…….. ~ Red Foley
