Home

Home is where it happens,

The “good” and the “bad”,

The broken bones,

The big smiles,

Home is where it happens.

Home is where it happens,

The fights and the makeups,

The stolen toys,

The hugs and the kisses,

Home is where it happens.

Home is where it happens,

The “sorrys” and the “whatevers”

The “I love you, Mommys”

The “ok, fines”,

Home is where it happens.

Home is where it happens,

The warmth and the snow,

The toasty fire,

The frost bite in the winter,

Home is where it happens.

Home is where it happens,

The laughs and the tantrums,

Little brothers screaming,

Little cousins dancing,

Home is where it happens.

Home is where it happens,

The “whys?” and the “nos”,

The “please mom”,

The “why dad”,

Home is where it happens.

Home is where it happens,

The love and the carefulness,

The ones who pick you up when you fall down,

The ones that make your heart glow,

Home is where it happens.

They are your home,

They are what holds you together,

They are what make you you.
