So Hope Will Live: The Downloadable Version

So Hope Will Live: An organ donation poem.

This poem was read with my permission recently at a celebration of organ donation.

“Know that I am grateful

 for the life you gave to me.

May my life give you light wherever you may be.

And may my life bring comfort from the pain that hurts you so:

we are strangers now a family, wherever we may go.”

Donate Life.

The joined hearts in the photograph signify the joined families created by organ donation. It is a heart, sometimes, but also livers, kidneys, corneas, tissue and other organs that now bind a donor’s family to the recipient. Strangers now a family. These are downloadable so that you can print out the poem on your printer or at a retail printer, and then put the poem into a frame of your choosing. A gift of gratitude for the donor’s family. Honor their donor. Honor their family. Honor their loved one.
