    They walk by
    You see them
    Once a week,
    Maybe every day -
    Ask for their name.

    Why not?
    There's nothing strange,
    Nothing to fear;
    Bridge the gap,
    Give them your name.

    What now?
    You both must go on
    But you shake a hand,
    Exchange smiles;
    You know their name.

    They're everywhere -
    Nameless humans,
    Only because
    We don't bother to ask
    "What's your name?"

    But what is it for?
    A jumble of letters,
    A vocal vibration,
    This name carries meaning
    It means this person.

    The person before you -
    So unlike anyone else,
    With an entire world
    You know nothing about,
    That begins with their name.
