So What do You Think is in a Name?


So what do you think is in a name?

The name that becomes an acquaintance

The acquaintance that leads to friendship

The friendship that grows into romance


The romance that creates vows

The vows that seal the wedding

The wedding that multiplies love

The love that begets children


The children that make a family

The family that branches like a tree

The tree that gives pieces of timber

The timber that forms a burning pyre


The pyre that leaves behind reflections

The reflections that dig up memories

The memories that are in an album

The album that holds some pictures


The pictures that have captions

The captions that include names

The names that live through you

So what do you think is in a name?
