Isn’t it true that we are just tourists

Only here for a little while

Spending the days we have here collecting

Packing our luggage with laughter and smiles

Every turn is another adventure

Every face like a stamp in our book

A heart touched a hand held memories started

Imagination shows the way if we look

Each new day offers endless adventure

A new start to try something new

To expand and become something better

A completely new version of you

What’s happened to get you to this place

Simply shaped and created a drive

To start changing the way you are living

And being glad and thankful you’re alive

Time like a vacation goes quickly

Each day faster than the one past

You cant get them back or rewind them

The true secret to making them last

Soak it up hold it close and remember

Each breath is an awesome reward

A tangible sign you should treasure

Stop looking behind and move forward

Pack them up and bring them along with you

Hold it close like a precious souvenir

They are the visible signs that we had them

The very proof that we were here
