Nicholas was an absolutely beautiful little 6 year old boy. He loved sharks, Lego, playing guitar, driving his police car, and his wonderful family. He used to tell his Mom and his Grandmother that he had 300 friends, but judging from all the lives he has touched in his short life I think he has many more than that. He continues to profoundly touch lives through the gift of his organs which are transforming the lives of four donor recipients. We will never forget you, little Nicholas!

Lyrics:

A little boy went out to play and briefly someone looked away
and in that moment he drowned in a swimming pool
Now as the family gathers 'round, the doctors who put hours down
into trying to save him ask them for favor.

The ask a mom who's lost her son to give away the future he no longer has
The little boy who held their hearts, his body is a treasure trove of parts

Meanwhile across town, a young girl in her dressing gown
is about to get the answer to her prayers.
Three times every week, dialysis hours leave her weak,
She always has a suitcase by the door.

Someone she doesn't know is giving her a kidney and she's glad.
A person she will never know is giving her the future he no longer has.

Accusations fly, sorrow, anger, wondering why,
a good chance that this marriage will not last that long.
And every night relives the scene, dreaming of what might have been,
'till overwhelming sadness finally gives in to sleep.

Another child that they don't know is going to get the heart that loved them so
Another father lays awake, thinking of the difference that all of this will make.

To cities far away other organs make their way
seven of them likely will save lives.
A new heart will beat in a body that was weak
Someone else will see through new eyes

People that they don't know, each one is grateful to him for his life.
His legacy will grow, as each one keeps part of him alive.
