Home

A certain freedom comes when I say the word,
a place where memories are made, and laughter is heard,
a place that is quaint yet beautiful,
a place to love and be loved,
a place perfect no matter what colour the walls are,
a place to find support when the sky seems to be falling down,
a place to feel the joy of success,
a place to live in one’s youth, and also in one’s final days,
a place for the imagination to run away,
a place to remain safe and secure,
a place in the heat of summer, and a place in the frost of winter,
a place to feast, a place to rest,
and a place to feel warmth in home’s hearth.
It has a roof, a door, and walls, but home is much more.
