Home

Home is a place that I know.
Home is a place that I grow.
A home can be from near or far,
But home is a home wherever you are.
A home can be filled with pride
Filled with love in and outside.
Home where memories are made.
Home where the light never fades.
Home where memories are made.
The place that you feel safe and sound,
Where you’re never lost wandering around.
Home is a place that you feel warm
And gives you shelter from raging storms.
Home can be a place to play.
Home can be a place to do your essays.
Somewhere that is always light ,
Even if you’re scared at night.
Somewhere that you always see,
The people you love, your family.
Home may be a place to eat.
Home may be a place to meet.
Canada, my native land
It’s a home where I live and stand.
A home for people from everywhere
Where all are welcome and all care.
Home is the place that I sleep.
Home is where no monsters creep.
Rain and snow, may blow outside,
But a home can keep you safe inside.
A place where friends can come to play,
That I’ll remember, for the rest of my days.
