I know not what was said
To cause the name to resound in my head.
Many a time, it has struck a chord
Many a song’s lyrics have I heard.
It stands out, I know not what it means.
My heart rests, uneasy.
Wondering further, why this name for me.
I know not why it comes time and again.
I have now learned.
The Lord rewards each beyond prayers heard.
Irene resounds once again.
No longer is my heart hard to bend.
Curiosity comes to those who ponder.
Mystery behind the name they seek.
To each one, a gift, to cause wonder.
A meaning behind the name, to teach.
