Coming Home

Home is where I can open my arms and get a big hug of comfort
The soft snowflakes landing on my head when I step outside
To know that having fights and arguments sometimes is normal, but then laugh it off after
The feeling of my dog’s fuzzy tongue against my cheek
Movie nights with everyone
Cuddling cozy blankets on a stormy night
Going hours on end, playing with my neighbours in my treehouse
Coming home from school and feeling safe talking about your day
The feeling of warm clothes after you take them out the laundry machine
The sound of the keys touching the piano when my sister plays me a song
When you jump into your bed after a long day
