A Home is a Shelter

A home is more than chairs and beds.
It’s a roof above your head.
A home defeats the storms of life,
And can always make you feel alright.

So, when the thunder roars,
And the wind soars,
Tears start to spark your face,
A home is the right place.

A home is a shelter,
A refuge too,
A place where problems always shoo.

It can deflect any foe,
Wherever you go.
Because a home is a shelter,
Always was, and always will be.
