When Taylor arrived in heaven
It seems she was missing a heart
There was a mother using it
Taylor's gift gave her a new start
Although Taylor's life has ended
Her heart is beating purposefully
Each beat a life is made more whole
A triumph born of tragedy
When young Taylor crossed the threshold
From temporary to Devine
The angels gathered around her
She knew everything would be fine
Some gifts require sacrifice
Yet her mom heard her heart still beats
One day they will be reunited
In the end death fails to defeat
Now on earth two mothers embrace
As Taylor looks down with a smile
A gift changes temporary
A fixed mom can stay for a while.
I watched a video about a families tragedy
and was moved to write this poem.
Look up Taylor's gift.
