Where My Heart Is

Where My Heart Is

By: Melanie Giesbrecht

Home is where your problems can be sorted out.

Home is where support surrounds you from every angle.

Home is where you can always see the faint flicker of a scented candle.

Home is where my heart is.

Home is where no-one cares how you look.

Home is where your bed pulls you into a hug.

Home is where family welcomes you back from long days away .

Home is where my heart is.

Home is where you can enter before knocking.

Home is where people come together to celebrate.

Home is where you can sing to your hearts content.

Home is where my heart is.

Home is where mealtime isn’t just to eat.

Home is where a cat’s soft purr lulls you to sleep.

Home is where you can dig deep and discover yourself.

Home is where my heart is.
