♥ The meaning of home ♥

Home is a wonderful place
Where I feel light on my face.
Waking up in the morning to silence
With no thoughts of violence.

Home is a place filled with warmth
With not a breath of cold from the North.
A place where I can play and sing
And feel welcome amongst everything.

There is no trace of sadness in my home
I can look out my window and see the sea foam.
Home is a place where I can take shelter
From the harsh Canadian weather.

But sadly many people don’t have a home like I do
And because of that they always feel blue.
Because of that I will strive
To make those people feel alive

In a home where they can live
In a home where they can give
Where they feel like I do
Filled with love and happiness true.
