Count Your Blessings 3

Walking down the street, I saw a gentle child with eyes of blue.
He stood and watched the others play with attention rapt and true.
I stopped a moment, then I said, "Why don't you join the others, dear?"
He smiled at me without a word and then I knew he could not hear.
Oh Lord, forgive me for not valueing what I've got.
I have two ears and yet the Dhamma I hear not.
With Metta,
Bro. Oh Teik Bin
