I am asked why I am happy without arms and legs,
I am asked why I have a wide smile, since I cannot speak.
I am asked why I love, without lyrics to learn.
I am asked why I see the heart, without saying anything.
Yes, I have my human, earthly limitations,
But it’s worth remembering that I’m composed of soul,
And, I have a lot of learning to teach and learn.
I know that many attempts by the Society were to reject me,
Until I bury it alive,
But, I survive in the heart of God.
If I was born that way, it was to teach you how to have:
Healthcare And Medicine,
And not only want material goods.
I am special to GOD yes!
And, I remember that He said:
"Get up and walk!"
And I do this with all the limitations I have,
And, what did you do to be happy?
Happiness is not in the saved gold,
But, in the soul treasure,
And, that the world has taught us well.
