Donate your organ, my dear!

Updated on August 20, 2014

With you nigh –

Mine eyes

have sight

only for a thing beautiful;

Mine nose

sweet fragrances sense;

Mine ears

tune to melodies memorable;

My buds of the palates

terrific ever;

Rest of mine

be pleased

with your proximity!


Yet,

strange!

bereft of any feel -

The heart of mine

dead is!


My liver,

my kidney,

my lungs

and

my intestines,

all fine -

functioning well!


My nerves

wracking with sighs,

My brain

senses

my dead heart!


My arms feed

and

my legs wander!


Mine heart

beats not in tune

with yours,

Nay,

My heart beats not,

beats not,

beats not!


Donate your heart

impregnated with love

to me,

I give you mine

For loading;

(‘cos

barter system

works the best!)


Else…

I shall die

missing the beat!


Be pleased

to see me happy,

if not,

go I coughing

into the coffin!

      I loved your poem from start to finish. I think more people should become Organ Donors. I am proud to be one. If I can use my body I hope someone else will.

      Love the flower photos, they make the poem even more of an enjoyable read. Donate your heart... how touching.
