What's in a Name

I need to remind myself why
As to why my name is required
Is it to look at the same old name
To become literally tired

Or do I read into an abyss
Where one needs a clue to be
I'm estranged as to why my name
Requires the reader to see

I can live for centuries
The desire to see, never compared
So why should I write my name
When I'm blank, my write is spared

Maybe I'm tired with age
Or common sense allows my right
I need to remind myself why
That who should know my writes

    Well, you have a great name and the guy that goes with it is pretty special too. Just don't go blank on us, that's what is happening to me. Luv, Lizzy

    I need to know your name so that I can communicate. And, yes, there is a certain pride in being able to set down a good poem, but my chief aim is to communicate my thoughts with someone out there and to have that someone grab hold and return the missile. I can certainly communicate with this one, James. Love, daver

    James, this is very interesting. I was thinking it could even work for the January contest, since January is with is for centuries and does not need the name January!!
