Home

A home is where you are safe and secure
It is where you were lured
By the love of people close to you
And will always feel loved
It is where memories were made that will never fade
It is where you make great memories that will last a lifetime
It is where you can have a cat or a dog curled up at your feet at bedtime
It is where you can have dreams
With beams of light coming through your window
It is where you and your friends can have pillow fights
It is also, where you learned how to climb up stairs
It is where you make it your own with renovations
Call it Home Sweet Home
It is where you can freely roam
It is where you can be speedy, sleepy and silly
It is comfortable and cozy
A place free from bullies
A place where you have proof of love and hope
A home is not just something you love
It is much more than just walls
Some beams and a roof
It is where you can have sky lights with plenty of sun
It is where you can have loved ones
It is where you grow
And it is where it snows
It is where leaves blow
Outside in the cold
It is where life happens
A home is where you are
Safe and Secure
