A Home is Not a House

A home is not a house

Its not a building a structure

Or a place for a mouse

It is a safe place, for me

Where I can be cozy, warm, safe

With my family

Alas , there are lots

Of people who don’t have much

But it doesn’t matter

Things like that don’t matter as such

What is important is the folks

of the people in the house

Crazy laughter, lots of jokes

A home is not a house
