What's In A Name? - Poem by Lora Seger

What's in a name?
Shakespeare's immortal question
A question of love..

A timeless romance
Love-struck children's flames
What's in a name?

A rose by any other name would still be as sweet
A Juliet and her Romeo, a love story still pure?
But, what's in a name? What is anything...
When love is in cord..

Sing to me, love
Sing to me of my Romeo.
Sweet Romeo by another name.
Sweet Romeo by a different time.

Your Juliet of another life awaits
Loving her Romeo
Your Juliet of another name..
What's in a name?

And what's in their love?
That makes the touch of it so sweet?
What's in me?
