A home is a place to sleep.
A home is a place to eat
Where I truly feel safe.
And I’m in my own space.

My home is close to the wilderness
Where I can find my calm.
I can often find butterflies,
That might land in my palm.

A home is where family gather.
Such as for family dinners.
When little cousins come to visit
They’re sure the show makers.

My heart immediately sinks
When I think of all those
Without a home of their own
With a life they never chose
