Home

My Home is a special place

That I love, and I may share.

I share my home with others

‘Cause my home is everywhere.

Oh, not just my house, with my family and my pets.

But a place that I cherish;

A place I won’t forget.

When a storm hits me hard

From a friend or a problem,

Being at home clears it out

So it hits rock bottom;

But Home’s too a place

Where I cry and I think hard.

About my mistakes

And forgiven from the heart.

My Home may vanish,

From the world, but not my heart;

‘Cause the heart is this place

Where the meaning all starts.
