Organ Donation

Organ Donation Can save up to 8 people and improve the lives of 50 people.

This is my Poem it is part of a letter I wrote to the Family of the Organ Donor that saved my Husband’s Life.

Anthem For Organ Donation

Today you died

I know not of your name, your age or how you died

I know not of your Race, your Religion or your Politics

I know not who will grieve for you

What I do know is that you were an Organ Donor

Your Gift to me was from your heart

From a purity that existed within your soul

and a love for your fellow man


I laughed, I cried

I felt joy

I felt pain

Today you gave me a second chance

There are Angels

and I am humbled that you were sent to me

Today your Gift has been used in the creation of a Miracle

Today you gave me

About moosewalker

Recently I have learned to accept myself imperfections and all. I have always defined myself through others because I was afraid. Afraid to let people see the real me, afraid they may not like me, afraid they may break my heart. Standing here today I’ve been through all of that and I’m OK. I have found my voice through my writing and although I am a work in progress I finally feel free. Expressing myself and being honest with myself has allowed me to emerge from my shell. I haven’t completely discarded it for it’s been my hiding place all of my life. I’ve just redecorated! My greatest joy comes from having my words delight, inspire and move you. Please put your comments I love reading them. “Standing on the rock arms outstretched I can touch heaven and earth “ Love Always, Heather
