Her Name (poem)

The world seemed so much clearer when I didn’t know her name

The sun rose every morning all the flowers smelled the same

And the music of the birds it had nothing to proclaim

My world seemed so much freer when I didn’t know her name


My heartbeat was much clearer with no passions then to tame

And language was much freer with no words of love to frame

To amble through one more day was my only special aim

The world seemed so much simpler when I didn’t know her name


And then the simple moonlight rich with kisses as its game

Amid the stars in heaven here the words I love you came

Poor me before I knew it was imprisoned by a flame

A world never existed when I didn’t know her name

So happy he discovered her name. He discovered himself and a world full of beauty and possibilities when he did.

Love the song. Perfect fit for this poem.

" The Name " interchanges now into the future and the future into eternity. You told us so in-between the lines.

Voted interesting.

Oh, how lovely ... and what a difference in everyday life for all to have special meaning now that he knows her name. I love how you changed this around.

God bless
