What's In A Name?

by Susan H Fouts

What's in a name?

That just the mention of it

Can cause a flitter

The heart beats a little faster.

Curiousity drives one forth

To see what was written today.

What's in a name, you say?

For yourself a name was made,

A poets heart with skillful pen

To write with beauty deep within

The soul expresses magnificence,

The talent goes way beyond words.

The quarrels and the bickers

Are nothing compared

To respect for a worthy writer.

Worthy of recognition

Worthy of fame.

To this I'll say, what's in a name?

Half a world apart,

But you've a special place in my heart

That prayers go out daily

For you and best wishes,

That angels are watching over you,

Protecting you for God's purpose

Just for you.

What's in a name?

God knows.
