What's In A Name?

By:Gloria Dianne


I remember the day we married.
You were so proud I was your bride.
You gave me your name so freely,
And I excepted it with pride.

During the years that followed,
I established my identify
Everything I am and own.
Carries the name you gave to me.

But now the marriage is over,
And both our lives have changed.
Now you've had a change of heart,
And want to take back your name.

Well, if our sharing the same last name.
For now and ever more,
Bothers you all that much,
I suggest that YOU change YOURS! !
