I am from the old wooden swing set in our backyard
From hair ties and hairspray
I am from the grayish green home
Filled with the fall candle scent
I am from the tomato plants
The mini pine trees
Whose long gone limbs I remember
As if they were my own.

I’m from game nights and brown hair
From Mom and Dad
I’m from do the dishes and walk the dog
And from I love you.

I’m from hold my hand and you’ll have fun at school
And the Veggie Tales theme song
I’m from birthday parties
I’m from Overland Park and Grandma’s house
Strawberry slushies and ooey gooey butter cake
From Spencer hitting a grand slam in little league coach pitch
And still claiming it was real home run
Nana’s old necklace
In a box on my desk
