FORGIVE ME WHEN I WHINE

Today upon a bus, I saw a lovely girl with golden hair; I envied her –

She seemed so happy, and how I wished I were so fair;

When suddenly she rose to leave, I saw her hobble down the aisle:

She had one foot and wore a crutch, but as she passed, she wore a smile.

Oh God, forgive me when I whine, I have two feet – the world is mine.

And when I stopped to buy some sweets,

The lad who served me had such charm;

He seemed to radiate good cheer, his manner was so kind and warm;

I said, “It’s nice to deal with you, such courtesy I seldom find”;

He turned and said, “Oh, thank you, sir.” And then I saw that he was blind.

Oh, God, forgive me when I whine, I have two eyes – the world is mine.

Then, when walking down the street, I saw a child with eyes of blue;

He stood and watched the others play it seemed he knew not what to do;

I stopped a moment then I said, “Why don’t you join the others, dear?”

He looked ahead without a word, and then I knew he could not hear.

Oh God, forgive me when I whine, I have two ears – the world is mine.

With feet to take me where I’d go; with eyes to see the sunsets glow,

With ears to hear what I would know, I’m blessed indeed, the world is mine;

Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. ~~ Source unknown
