I Am From

I am from walks in the park
    Where leaves fall on your head.
    Where flowers bloom
    Under your feet.
    The wet trees will drip
    Onto your outstretched hand.

I am from hot cocoa
    When I get home.
    When I can eat all of the marshmallows
    Before I take a sip.
    When I can watch TV
    And the cup will warm my hands.

I am from lazy Sundays
    Where the world sleeps.
    Where music plays
    All day long.
    When even time
    Takes a nap.
