where i'm from - today

i am from fresh starts and rising sun
from morning glory barefoot on dewdrop grass
i am from rise and shine and stretch it out
from cheerios and to-do's - milk and kisses
from lunch notes and hairbrushes
from a heart spread all over be collected again at 3
from dances in the kitchen at 4
and shameless singing all the way across town at 5

but home is where my soul warms, here my spirit rests
where your dimples and big brown eyes make me act all a fool
where i'll do most anything to watch you smile as the sun turns orange and the crickets sing
here is where we'll spin family out of belly laughs and snaggle-tooth grins
where we'll eat your favorite mac and cheese again
where i'll read you one more story
where there are bubbles in the tub tonight
and where i'll tuck the covers all snug 'round you before i kiss you to sleep
because here is where you're from
