I’m from the candles in my house at wintertime
From the fruity smelling tea in the kitchen
I’m from the homemade lasagna
The green trees in our backyard
From the best Barbie doll when I used to play with it.

I’m from the words of Grandma’s
From the covered chocolate waffles
I’m from the bubbling hot tub
From “never going with somebody you don’t know” and from the family hugs.

I’m from the Wild side of my family
From the cheesecake every birthday
From when mama always was there for everybody
From the fireplace in my house
From the talks at Christmas.

I am from moments.
From a house that’s inviting like the smell of the first spring day.
