Home

Home is a very special place for me,
Where I am cared for, loved and happy as can be.
I am always laughing, smiling and having fun,
Where we are always playing out in the sun.

When I think of home,
I think of family and friends,
Long-lasting memories that will never end.
Home is a place where I feel safe,
Somedays I never want to leave this place.

When I’m in my home,
I think of those who don’t have their own,
When I’m eating toast with jam I think of how lucky I am.

If we all do our part,
And open our hearts
Open our door,
Wide-open for the poor.
The world will be a better place
Where everyone has a right to be safe.

This is my home and my life
This is where my heart is
