FOR ORGAN DONATION DAY
THE GREATEST GIFT I CAN GIVE
By Ernest Joseph Flanagan
My body will live forever while my soul is free to roam.
I have brought the gift of life to many a stranger’s home.
So many parts of me live on to laugh and love,
While I watch in satisfaction from somewhere up above.
Someone sees with my eyes, the wonders of the earth,
Another has my heart ‘cause his was flawed from birth
My liver, kidneys and pancreas are working 24/7,
While my soul is speeding towards God and Heaven.
My lungs are still breathing the air that God gives free,
In someone else’s body who would be dead if not for me.
My donated organs are simply the greatest gift I can give,
It won’t cost me anything while I help others to live.
God bless you.
