I am from Italy and Ireland// From being 5 and old kitchens// I am from Barbara and Patrick// From a big backyard and busy streets// I am from an average house and celebrating Christmas with my family// From Barbie dolls to National Treasure// I am from Jane and Dominic and Louise// From running around the house and being punished// The stories will be remebered// And the stories will change with each person who tells them//

I am from unforgetten pictures and Andrew Clements books// From people helping me and my first teacher, Mrs. Rivers// I am from eating in the living room with the family to many laughs were I start to cry// From my best friend Andy who I may never be able to see again since he has moved// I am from Pochanontas and bows on my shirts// From tough deaths to my dog Jake// May the memories stick with me// And may the journey be worth taking//

I am from a light blue and chocolate covered room to England and Czech Republic// From waking up at early when I was younger to working my job// I am from homemade spaghetti and meatballs to awesome siblings// From Kennedy and the High School// I am from taking trips around the country and the hospital where I was born// From wanting to be more then I am// I am from the house on Park Ave. to my future at college
From family who through life is the best// The memories will carry on and be remebered through generations// And the thoughts will stay deep in my heart//
