Home Is

My Safe Place

Home is my place where my story begins,
It’s a place where people say “Come on in”.
Home is a place where secrets come alive,
It’s a place that can send your spirits soaring high.

Home is my safe place, my place to feel warm,
It’s a home that keeps me safe from all harm.
Home is a place to feel safe, happy and sad,
It’s a place that has seen things both good and bad.

Most people’s homes hide most of their fears,
Each and every home has seen many, many tears.
I’m lucky to have a roof over my head,
I’m lucky to have fresh food and a bed.

I like to have a home where a hand I can lend,
It’s the place where my story started,
And where it will end.
