Home

Home is a place of beauty
The only place for me
Home is a place of wonder
Where I can just be free

Home is a place with family
A place where I feel at peace
If you want to relax or forget the world
Home will put you at ease

During dark times when hope is scarce
Home is a place you can hide
It’s an awesome safe haven for all
Home will give you great pride

A good home doesn’t need to be amazing
As the world isn’t always ideal
But so long as it gives you hope
Great secrets it may reveal

The secrets of dreams dreamt in its midst
The love that carries throughout
A meaningful world of compassion and care
That is what home is about

It doesn’t have to be perfect
It doesn’t have to have flair
It doesn’t even need walls
But home must always be there
