Do you have one of those name's ?
You think to yourself ?
What were my parents thinking?
I know what my Mother was thinking.
And my Daddy honored my Mother,
by agreeing with her desire.
I like my name.
But even more I like the reason
I have been blessed with my name.
Here I am Mona Fay:
Here is Mona Fay
and her Mommy Rita Gay,
(yes our name's rhyme)
Sleeping in my mother's heart,
she knew a name that was a part of her
before she ever held me in her arms.
I don't know the moment she decided
I would become a child swaddled with
a name that would be me for eternity,
here I was, unlike any other,
like two who Mother loved.
And who I have come to love.
This is my Mother with her two sisters
Ramona, and Sondra Fay.
This is My Aunt Mona
with me as a baby in her lap,
and my cousin Judy a little girl.
This is my Mother
and My Aunt Sondra Fay
when they were Little Girls
This is two Lady's I Love
My name sake
My Aunt Mona
My Aunt Sondra Fay.
Now that I am grown;
I Thank you for the precious gift
Of a beautiful name;
I will be a part of you both for eternity;
through the endearing love you
share with my Mother
who looked into my eye's
