Home is a place you wake up and hope the sun will shine
Keeping everybody feeling fine
A home is a place with memories, hope and
Some despair
But home is there when we feel fear

Home is a place for traditions,
When you sit around the Christmas tree,
Opening your presents and being thankful for what you see
Home is warm, home is safety and it is love

My family is special, funny and sweet, we have family dinners
While sharing our laughter
And talking faster

That is what home means to me
(Did you know that 735,000 children do not have a safe home?)
