A friend sent it to me today.



THE WORLD IS MINE - Author Unknown

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 used 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 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 two eyes; the world is mine.

Later while walking down the street,

I saw a child that I knew.

He stood and watched the others play,

but he 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 should know.

Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.

I've been blessed indeed, the world is mine.




I am thankful beyond words for my AWESOME FRIENDS
