Home

My home isn’t a home without a family,
With caring, loving, and arguing too.
My mom, my dad, and my sister,
It makes my home not so blue!

My home is a safe place
A shelter from wind and cold
It brings me joy and calmness
It’s worth more than gold!

I love the smell in the kitchen
When my mom makes apple crisp.
I like to eat it with ice cream
It’s my favourite dish.

I can’t imagine being homeless
With not enough money to eat
Cold and wet and tired
Shivering with bare feet

Everyone deserves a home
Of their very own.
