Just when I thought she had left me forever; she turns up wearing a tan and full of adventures to tell!

Fear not ma’am I’m back; I never really went away;

I was on bright side of your mind; there I went to play.

Winter’s cold and dreary; there was warm ya know;

when I seem to disappear; you’ll know where I go.

~~~~~~

I swam in beaches made of memories inside your head;

picked up seashells; that you’d seen but left instead.

In your mind you have saved a ton of good places;

for me to play; sight see; and meet all new faces.

~~~~~~

For you they are old memories; but to me they are new;

I’m stuck at age six; so I never traveled as much as you.

I rode a boat and flew in a plane; that was sure a treat!

Vacationing in Kodiak; now that was a memory sweet;

~~~~~~

I’m glad you went there in summer; not cold or snow;

I fished for salmon just like you; saw the ones you know.

Your daughter and her husband; and granddaughter too;

In your memory they’re still there; a year younger or two.

~~~~~~

I enjoyed my time away; keep making memories for me;

so when I get bored I can travel in them completely free!

Sorry if I worried you; it wasn’t my intent to make you fret;

But if ya ask me if I’m sorry I went; I don’t have one regret!
