Aren't we glad..??

Ya Allah,

today, upon a bus,
i saw a girl with golden hair,
and wished i was a 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 two legs, the world is mine..

I stop to buy some candy,
the lad who sold it had such charmed,
i talked with him, he seemed so glad,
if i were late, it do not harm,
and as i left, he said to me,
"i thank you, you've been so kind,
it's nice to talk with folk like you.
you see, "he said," i'm blind."
Ya Allah, forgive me when i whine,
i have two eyes, the world is mine..

Later while walking down the street,
i saw a child with eye of blue.
he stood and watched the others play.
he didn't know what to do.
i stopped a moment and then i said,
"why don' you join the others, dear?"
he looked ahead without a word,
and then i realized, he is daft.
Ya Allah, 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,
Ya Allah, forgive me when i whine,
I've been blessed indeed, the world is mine...
