I am from the scent of freshly baked cookies
From my mom teaching me how to cook
I am from colorful flowers blooming in our yard
Watching the wind blow them left and right
I am from having open-heart surgery
From the doctor who saved my life
I am from sneaking candy from my grandma
Never telling her I knew where her secret drawer of candy was
I am from Norfolk Academy
Born to be a bulldog
I am from going to work with my mom
Helping her set up her room at the end of summer
I am from my moms sweet voice saying good night
From home cooked meals
Piles of family photo albums
from playing soccer with my dad in the front yard
I am from the sweet smell of fall
The burning of leaves
The chill of wind sweeping my face
In my heart is a decorated box of memories
A sea of love and happiness
Floating on my dreams I am from those moments
