Home

The meaning of home is where you are safe
A place you can be when you are in peril
A place that provides shelter from danger
And a place without a single stranger

It can be anywhere, a tent, a house
Even inside the canal of Murray
A place where you do not have to worry
A place that you do not have to leave in a hurry

A place you feel warm and can be with others
Where you can eat a meal served warm and nice
Where you can sleep in a bed in warm covers
And have dreams that you can hover or have lovers

Even if you live in a cave or a dome
As long as you are in comfort
Where you don’t have to close the shutters
That is the meaning of home
