The World is Mine

Give the gift of love. It never comes back empty!

Today upon a bus, I saw a very beautiful woman and wished I were as
beautiful. When suddenly she rose to leave,
I saw her hobble down the aisle.
She had one leg and wore a crutch.
But as she passed, she passed a smile.
Oh, God forgive me when I whine.
I have two legs; the world is mine.

I stopped to buy some candy.
The lad who sold it had some 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 two eyes; the world is mine.

Later while walking down the street,
I saw a child I knew.
He stood and watched the others play,
but did not know what to do.
I stopped a moment and then i said,
"Why don't you join them dear?"
He looked ahead without a word.
I forgot, he couldn't 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 sunset's glow.
With ears to hear what I'd know.
Oh, God, forgive me when i whine.
I've been blessed, the world is mine.


Have a good day.

Was trying to thread all our joys together, Emma :-D :-D Not Joys as in Kentish Maid and Benson - just joys. My blood pressure is 130 something over 80 something, so I am both amazed and very happy and feel very blessed :-D
