The world is mine

Today upon a bus I saw A girl with golden hair; She seemed so gay, I envied her, And wish that I were half so fair; I watched her as she rose to leave, And saw her hobble down the aisle. She had one leg and wore a crutch, But as she passed--a smile. Oh, God, forgive me when I whine; I have two legs--the world is mine.
