A Home With Love

A Home With Love

I turn the cold, golden doorknob and head inside to see my dad’s
soft loving smile that greets me in the afternoon after a long day of school.
My dog’s rough, wet tongue softly gliding along my face,
It’s the little things that matter, that I can’t let go.
It’s not the lights inside my home that makes it bright,
It’s the soft loving faces that really lights it up.
It’s the fact that it’s not just four walls and a roof
Over my head, it is the people inside.
There is one feeling that no one can change,
the feeling of love, family and happiness.
Family is the heart, family is everything you could wish for.
Home is, every meal, every smile from my mom, and every
loving hug I get. Everyone should have the
same freedom, love, and shelter as me.
All it takes is to write, and you can help too.
