Home

To me, home is a place where i am appreciated for who I am.
A place where I can go when the sun won’t show.
Where I have memories of joy.
Where my friends can meet,
And I can sleep.
The feeling of the floor beneath my toes,
A place where my family comes and goes.
The sound of the hail outside the walls,
The sound of my sister dancing in the halls.
Then there’s the sea and my cousin,
throwing rocks in with glee.
To some home comes from a store,
but to me…Home means ten times more.
