Ya Allah, Forgive
MeTodayupon a busI saw a girl with golden hair.and wished I was as fair.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, a smile.Ya Allah, forgive me when I whine.
i have 2 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."Ya Allah, 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.Ya Allah, 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.Ya Allah, forgive me when I whine.I've been blessed
indeed,the world is mine.
