What we have in common
stretches beyond our mortal shell;
If I have a kidney, it is yours
I have two – take one, and live.
If I die, my eyes are yours – see for me.
My heart is yours for the beating –
My lungs breathe for you; they no longer sustain me.
All that I am is yours.
Let me be folded into your chest.
Let my sacrifice be worthy of your hope.

Wonderful post. Organ donation can save lives – plain and simple. Why would we not want to do that?
Fantastic work, my new friend.
if that image alone wasn’t haunting enough, your words certainly are.
