PAD23 - Places I Have Been Poem


We moved to St. Petersburg, the Poconos, Plant City,
Brandon, and then to a mountain in Maggie Valley.

We searched in Asheville, Waynesville, Franklin
and Bryson City, Tampa, Brandon, Seffner, Tennesee
and Texas.

We moved to a condo, an apartment, a home with land,
two different mountain ranges, and then to the ocean.

We went to Italy, tried to retrace our steps when we
were there with you, we walked through Rome and
Venice, to the glacier we skied on in the alps.

We walked the streets of New York to just be in the
same places you once walked, ate at the places we ate
saw the same museums and took the same tours.

We went to Mexico, Costa Rica, Canada, Portland, Hawaii,
Boca Raton, Savannah, Georgia, North Carolina, Alaska
Seattle, to family in South Carolina, Nashville, Brandon,
Prosperity, Nashville, Kissimmee, Winter Haven, Orlando,
Frostproof and to our families in Texas, Garland, Plano,
Richardson, Corinth, Houston, Gainesville, Clearwater,
and still we search.
