I Took Your Name

I Took Your Name

They never toiled

In your fields

As I did

But they reaped

Your harvest.

Yes, they bought

Your seedlings nourishments

But I nurtured

Them to fruition.

Now, your innards

They have ravaged

Leaving you

Aged and alone

All I am left with

I take home with me

Your name

For my unborn child.

(Inspired by the song “I took your name” by REM)
