What does this tie mean, son of
  it had to have meant something
We pick up the threads of unknown
  mystery in the mentioning of these
Twelve with histories, being known

A history, a story, a backdrop of

  yet we have our own, sons and
Daughters of those we have a history

The faith of now and the walk we do
  let us not forget where and who
