The meaning of home

What does home mean to me?
It’s a feeling of security.
Walls protect me from the storm.
My mom’s embrace keeps me warm.
I have no fear of what hides outside.
All of my worries to my mom I confide.

What does home mean to me?
It’s treating each other lovingly.
Home is feeling loved every day.
It’s the encouraging words I hear my dad say.
It’s where I learned to express my love.
We gather at meals and thank our God above.

What does home mean to me?
Simple. It’s being anywhere with my family.
It’s my mom, dad, sister and brother.
Always showing up for each other.

We open our doors with our neighbours with whom we share.
We host international students showing the world we care.
Home is a feeling in our hearts.
It’s not just a building that can be torn apart.
Homes are built but never taken away.
Because home is in your heart and it’s there to stay.
