A Home is a Place

A home is not a place with 4 walls and a door,
It is a place that is worth so much more.
A home is a place where you can drink and eat, and at the end of the day, kick the shoes off your feet.
A home is a place where you can laugh, cry, and sleep,
It’s something in your heart you should forever keep.

A home is a place with a strong foundation,
And a place to create your imagination.

Here you can have the warm embraces of your mother,
And sit down to visit, and talk with one another.
A home is not simply somewhere to stay,
It’s where you can make memories while you laugh and play.

A home is a place where you can run from your fears,
And a place to create smiles and shed tears.

I am lucky to have a place of my own,
Because some people don’t have a place to call home.
