Heart Of Stone - Poem by Ricardo Antunes

Heart of Stone

His Heart Kept Beating
After He Stopped Breathing
His Heart Was Healthy
His Healthiest Organ
A Heart Transplant
Before Christmas Eve
He Received That Day
Almost 12 Years Back
On December 23rd,2000
He Kept On Fighting For Life
And Live He Did
Until He Died
And When He Stopped Breathing
And His Heart Stopped Beating
His Heart Became Cold
As A Heart Of Stone
But A Stone He Was Not
He Was Of Flesh And Blood
A Mortal Man OF Flesh And Bone
To The Hospital He Was A Patient
Dying From C. Diff
A Blood Infection
Reinal Failure
And Adema
But To Me He Was My Father
