The journey is a challenge
To go where few would go
To find the strength inside us
That someday lets us grow

We do the work and try our best
Though often not enough
Sometimes there are no answers
When the road ahead is rough

What might bring us closer
Can sometimes drive apart
And leave us just with memories
We keep within our heart

And so things end unfinished
But no matter where I roam
There will always be a part of me
That’s never far from home

Never Far From Home is an inspirational poem about a young man who didn’t make it home one night.  While his young life was cut short, he was able to make a difference in the lives of many people through organ donation.
