Cherrie is now using Debbie's kidney,*
Having lost the service of her own.
Each moment of existence is a gift
Replacing the miracle one has just left,
Renewing momently the moment gone.
In such a melody each note exactly
Embodies the full grace of what was done.

*For the donor of Cherrie's kidney, see Debbie.
