Back where i came from

By
Back where I came from…

The ocean was not far away
I would sit in the sun and waste the day
Back where I came from all your neighbors are friends
Your food was theirs and your happiness they shared
My best friend and I had no troubles in the world
Where we came from flowers grew tall
Gardens full and lush
No pesticides on the vegetables
No wax on the fruit

Back where I came from…
I was daddy’s little girl
And moms wild flower
Grandma’s spice
Grandpa’s sweets

Back where I came from the ocean is all you need
Crisp and glistening in the sun
Sun burn and tan lines

Back where I came from tea came sweet
All the little things didn’t matter
And to see you parents in the same room was true happiness

Back where I came from…
Seems far away now
But I hope to go back again
A visit to where I came from
And what I love

Back where I came from…
Defines who I am.
