I am from naps on my leather couch
From Yankee Candles and Love Spell perfume
I am from the Japanese maple in the front yard,
The yellow flowers by the porch.
I am from beef dip and blonde hair,
From Jack and Eileen
And John and LaVerne
I am from the sarcasm and odd knowledge
From “Can you change it?” and “Would you jump off a bridge if they did too?”
I am from Catholicism and CCD on Wednesday nights
I’m from Menomonee Falls and Ireland,
From Germany and Polish kisses
From “Is it $12.99 for one shoe or both?”
The destroying of “Silent Night”,
And the arguing over stupid things
I am from the Christmas tree that makes us all smile
And moments that bring us together
As friends, as people, as a family.
