I’m from the big blue couch in my living room
From Nintendo 64 and the Wii,
I’m from divorced parents who became best friends
Who want what’s best for me.

I’m from a white house and a lavender room
From my salt and pepper shaker collection,
I’m from homemade chicken noodle soup
From slow cooked ribs made to perfection.

I’m from my grandparents’ house around the corner
From walking my miniature schnoodle, Teddy,
I’m from waking up early to go shopping with Mom,
And her yelling, “Are you ready?”

I’m from Bananas in Pajamas and Sesame Street
From red rover and tag with friends,
I’m from birthday parties at Wisconsin Dells
From love that has no end.
