meaning of home

What does home mean to me?
It’s where we laugh all day and dream all night.                                                                                        It’s where my family is there to comfort me .
It’s where all the fun is going to be.

What does home mean to me?
It’s where the storm gets shut out and the love stays in.
My kitchen is filled with food and laughter and
Meals are eaten together.

What does home mean to me?
It’s where my family gathers around the campfire on a nice night.
Where the stars are bright and you
May even see the northern lights.

What does home mean to me?
A warm bed and clean clothes
And stories are told in a snuggle time
With my family.

What does home mean to me?
Love, music, family, and friends
They will always have a warm welcome
No matter the time of year.

Note:  This poem was inspired by my recent trip to Brussels where I saw a family who only had a mattress on the sidewalk and one blanket.  Their roof was the sky and they were not protected from the weather.  The family was a mom, dad, and little girl.  This made me sad to think that I have so much and they have so little.  This is why my home is so special to me.
