Selfless

take flight

If a bit of you
Could change the world
Would you bestow it?

If that small piece could…

Give light to a dark journey
Give breath to a poet
Give love that extra moment

Would you entrust it to another?

Some smallest bit
No longer needed
…no longer used

Would you give it to another…
…and change their world?

(there is a lovely blogger named Julie (http://juliegreenart.com) who asked me to write a piece about organ donation.  Julie is very involved in FilmLife Project (http://www.filmlifeproject.org/), which spotlights short films on the beauty/importance of organ donation.  It is a joyous read — have a look!)
