What’s my name?

Copyright 3-31-2017

Steve Lake

 

I was introduced to you

At the first moment you opened your eyes

I will be with you for a lifetime

My influence will never subside

 

We will have a lifetime

For you to guess my name

I will leave you clues

Even if you are blind

 

I am with you as you learn good and bad

Some say I influence you which makes me sad

I just inject your thoughts with difference

Some just say I am wicked

 

Invisible to the naked eye

I hide within you

You are my disguise

 

Each step you take in your lifetime

Are the foot prints I left behind

All the tricks I feed you

Just keep others blind

 

Decade after decade I ask you

No wiser than the first day we met

My name is so simple

Yet you don’t even render a guess

 

I must try harder

You fail me as we go

Maybe you will get a clue if

I make you the show

 

Others know your name

They recognize your face

Into history you march

Yes I am to blame

Our lifetime closes in

I must ask again

What’s my name?

So simple it could be the same

 

Your life was my life

From the first light of your sight

I bring you memories

Some bad and others of delight

 

Your breath gets shallow

Your strength begins to fade

Just one more step before

Before you enter your grave

 

I ask you now

What is my name?

I ask you now

You must avow out loud

What is my name?

 

You!

I am you

Not a spirit of a ghostly past

But you from the beginning through the last
