what is home to me

What home means to me (poem)

Home is me coming home happy.
Mom asking me what I did at school.
Hugging her and responding “ nothing” with a smile.
Telling my mom I love her more than anything.
That’s what home means to me!

Home is sitting together with my family
Mom and dad telling me they’re proud of me.
Feeling free to do what I like
Sleeping comfortably and tucked in tight
That’s what home means to me!

Home is me playing with my brother
Having a good time together
Wrestling with each other
Sometimes we do not get along
But it’s ok he’s still my brother
That’s what home means to me!

Home is my dad coming home from work
Asking him what work was like
Always responding “good”, “bad” or “ok”
I say it wasn’t the best day today
He said I feel better at home
That’s what home means to me!

Home is a place full of love
Watching my mom bake chocolate chip cookie in the shape of doves
I get gifts for my birthday
Cutting my birthday cake and adding a delicious topping like whip cream spray
That’s what home means to me!

Everyone that has a home should be thankful
Some people don’t have a home and they’re grateful
A home is a place that keeps us safe
In our parents eyes and in their hearts

That’s the meaning of home!
