What’s In A Name - Poem by Cecil (C.J.) Krieger

She carries my name
Like a mother
Carrying a child

Softly speaking
Sort of like a baby walking
On broken glass

When her lips move
Calling out to me
No one speaks

So that everyone
Might hear her
Say my name

Hush…
Please be silent
She’s calling me

Topic(s) of this poem: name, silence
