This boy has passed away but when he was alive he had a heart full of love and heartsongs. He appeared on Oprah and really touched many hearts.

Call me a heathen, but I could never really get into poetry. Written by a child with a rare form of muscular dystrophy (I believe he has died since the book was published), the blurb says: "Mattie writes movingly and courageously about life and death, love and loss, faith and hope, innocence and joy."

In his short life, Mattie Stepanek wrote many books of poetry. He began writing at the age of 3. Mattie had a rare form of MS and died just a couple years ago. These are some of his poems.
