The Name David Means Beloved

                 David of the Bible
                 left his name-- a legacy
                 to future generations

My grandfather carried his name
to Ellis Island, but too many refugees
and thick accents altered names
His last name lost its ending
His first name, David, remained

My son- born two years after
my grandfather died- carries his name
It is written that a name carries divine energy
It is a thread that connects generations
