The Heart Of An Angel

She has the heart of an angel A blessed gift from above A second chance to live Through a donation of love. Her scars are a reminder To treasure each day To follow her dreams And lead others the same way. Her strength and courage Are an inspiration to us all Teaching us to believe And always stand tall. With a gentle smile Her eyes shine bright A petite miracle With a spiritual light. Like a pot of gold She harbors a treasure A symbol of life Only a donor can measure. She has the heart of an angel Embracing life’s chance Through the gift of another Living is her romance. NOTE: Back in 1997, a little girl from Mankato, Minnesota desperately needed a heart transplant--and God didn't let her down! Today she is almost 19 and her smile lights up the room when she walks in. This poem is dedicated to her--to her strength and courage--and to her energy and compassion! Though there seems to be alot of minut controversy over being a donor, I am very proud to be a donor--and --I hope that one day, if somone ever needs a second chance at life--my being a donor will make a difference to them!

Thanks Deborah, this was beautiful. *Just wanted you all to know that this poem was written about my daughter who received her Gift Of Life just in time, a new Heart, now Matthew lives on through my lovely daughter Alyssa. Thank you for giving her a 2nd chance.

Smile~I absolutely love it! I too am a doner! I have beheld countless lives given second chances because of the unselfish love of others....and nothing is most beautiful, than that of an innocent child receiving a second chance to live out their precious lives; wherein others words they very well may have not!? Bravo to You Deborah! And all of those such as you! Another compelling, uplifting and beautiful write dear lady! Love and Warmth as Always to You and Yours, John!:)

What an amazing tribute. A second chance is something many of us do not or will not get. I am proud to be a donor too, and hope when it is my turn, I still have something worth donating! Angels are above us, and walk among us too. Beautiful write. Love, Shar
