A Special Place Called Home

A Special Place Called Home

Home is where I can relax
and a place for everyone to share a laugh.
I open the door sad,
but when I come in, I feel glad.
All my fears go away
and all my tears fade away.
We gather together and see old friends and new friends.
I think of old memories and new memories
that stay dear in my heart.
Angels fight away fear
but it’s ok to let out a little tear.
I am safe and secure.
God knows memories we don’t know
but it’s ok, I’ll never let my memories go.
Home is a special place. A place to relax and settle.
Home is a place to share emotions
whether you’re sad or mad and it’s ok to feel bad.
At home I make mistakes but I’ll do what it takes.
You should be grateful you have a home
and not always stay on your phone.
Home is a place to keep and also a place to sleep.
Home is a place I can be me and a place for everyone to be welcomed and seen.
Home is a place where my mom cooks food.
It is a place where I can eat and also a place for me to sleep.
Home is a place where I feel good.
God gave us a special place called home,
that’s why I wrote this poem.
