A new heart is all she ever wanted.
She asked one and all;
Do you have a heart I could use?
I just need it to survive.
A new heart to see another sunset.
To see my brother and sister's children
and their children.
Every year she hoped and prayed for a new heart,
for her's wasn't healty.
A new heart came finally, but at a price;
for another had to die.
Dee had her wish come true,
a new lease on life.
The heart didnt change her passion for
life but made it stronger.
Sadly, the heart was just temporary,
she died knowing her dream came true.
I miss Dee very much, but I know.
She is laughing and smiling up above,
watching over all the lives she touched.
*This poem is dedicated for all those waiting or have a new lease on life.
