*THE FRUITFUL LIFE SEEKS RAIN AS WELL AS SUNSHINE*


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 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 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.

feet

With eyes to see the sunset’s glow.

eyes

With ears to hear what I’d know.

ears

Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.

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