David Kawika Crowley, a Hawaiian musician and advocate of increasing organ donor membership, created a beautiful song that expresses the love and life that is shared when a person benefits from an organ donation. Some of the hauntingly beautiful lyrics include,
The greatest gift of love is to leave a part of you behind
As I go I leave you life and a little gift to remember me by
So take this part of me and never forget the reason to live is only to give
It’s time for me to leave so take a part of me and live
Crowley's anthem for the organ donor movement, "The Organ Donor Song" (The Greatest Gift Of Love), is available on YouTube.
