A Simple Act

I visited her grave today
Laid fresh flowers at the site
I stayed until the sun went down
And day turned into night

I thought about the accident
That prematurely ended her life
I never met this brave young girl
And wondered what she was like

All I knew about the loved one here
Was her name and the simple fact
That when she got her driver’s license
She signed the donor part on back

And now her heart beats inside me
A man she never knew
I illegally found out who you were
So I could come here to thank you

A simple act, to sign your name
May give life when yours does end
I am able to bring you flowers now
Because you saved my life, good friend

    Sometimes old dogs, it surely seems, can faithfully remember. They bring their springtime hearts to thank the ones who gave them their December. ... Great job... Jake
