USA 

The place where I was made 

Hours and hours on end I played 

Not one care ever coming my way 

Those days are the ones I praise 

Family here and there 

Well 

Everywhere 

Vacations together in our finest beachwear 

Christmases that we all shared 

But it’s time to say goodbye 

You’ll always be my ally 

I promise to drop by 

But for now it’s time to say 

The dreaded goodbye 

El Salvador 

Where I spent 4 years of my life 

It cutting a place for it in my heart with it’s knife 

They passed by, those years 

The sound of life there being music to my ears 

Friends where always around 

Everyone feeling safe and sound 

Some people left, some stayed years round 

Even though I left my home, I think I have found 

Another place to call my home ground 

But it’s time again to say goodbye 

You’ll always be my ally 

I promise to drop by 

But for now it’s time to say 

The dreaded goodbye

Philippines 

You’re next on my list of places to stay 

Not sure what to expect, some areas are gray 

I hope this place has found some space 

I’ll be here for a while, and that’s just something I have to face 

In a new location, there’s much concern 

But there’s also so much to learn 

Like how many beaches and places I’m going to get sunburn The different breathtaking views and tree ferns 

The more I see and experience, the more I yearn to continue to learn 

Of course I’m 

Worried 

Scared 

And Nervous 

But I’m also 

Excited 

Curious 

And Ready 

The more I see, the more I want to 

Try it 

Experience it 

And Live it 

So here’s To The Places 

I’ve Been 

Am At 

And Will Go To 

Cheers.

To the Places I’ve Been Am At and Will Go
