The Meaning of Home

The Meaning of Home
By Juliette Hudson

Home is where I sleep and eat
Home is where I get on my feet
At home is where my family is
At home is where everything begins
At home I am nice and warm
At home I am safe from every storm
At home I play lots of games
At home all my art is in frames
I have a comfy, cosy home
And there are lots of places to roam
My home is so much fun
At home I meet everyone
At home is where I keep my things
And if someone rings the doorbell it dings
But I am very sad to say
Some others do not have the things I do today
I have a roof up over my head
I have a very comfy bed
They have almost really nothing
But together we can give or make them something
We can do it if we just try
We can do it together you and I!
