A Place to Call Home

I walked home from school on just an ordinary day My home greeted me in every single way My parents came and wrapped me in their warm and safe embrace My sisters came and grabbed my hand so I would join them and play And here comes my dog jumping up on my knees This is what home is, having family I slip on my shoes and outside I go I laugh, play, and jump as the calm breeze blows I fall but my sister catches me This is what home is, having safety Later as we all sit down to a nice home cooked meal We talk about our day, what happened, how we feel Home is home, home is me Surrounded by friends and family Home is a wonderful thing and with that We should all help habitat Everyone deserves a place of their own And not just a house, but a place to call home
