YOUR FAMILY NAME

Nelle A. Williams

It came from your father,

It was all he had to give,

So it’s yours to use and cherish

As long as you may live.

*

If you lose the watch he gave you

It can always be replaced.

But a black mark on your name, son

Can never be erased.

*

It was clean the day you took it

And a worthy name to bear,

When I got it from my father

There was no dishonor there.

*

So make sure you guard it wisely

After all is said and done,

You’ll be glad the name is spotless

When you give it to your son.
