One’s True Name

Nothing is lost; everything is gained
from one generation to another;
on and on is the chorus’ refrain,
singing praise for father and mother

who commingle back to Adam and Eve
and before that to the eternal word
granted to creation on Big Bang’s eve
with expanding reverberations to be heard

from dawn to dust into infinity.
From dust we came and to dust we go
but that dust is never lost in eternity;
rather its spirit is marked with life aglow,

signifying an eternally precious life
which is never gone and heaven to gain —
a spiritual body with life rife
emerging from birth’s primordial pain

to shout, “God has granted me my true name!”
