HOME
To me home is a special place,
A place where I feel safe and secure from the cold.
A place I’m loved and cared about
A place where I have family and memories.
A place where dreams come true
A place where everyone matters.

Home is where you’re known for being who you are
A place where you’re known for your talents, dreams and hopes
A place where there is a corner to read.

Home is a place where you have your own privacy and boundaries.
A place where you can feel comfortable doing what you want.
A place where someone is always there to stand up for you.
A place where you are never alone.

Home is where there is teamwork and cooperation.
A place where you feel proud of who you are.
A place where you can express your emotions.
A place where old friends reunite.
And new friends are made.

Home is a place where you encourage others
And to be encouraged, when others are discouraged.
A place where everyone has bright smiles on their faces

Home is where you feel warm and welcomed.
A place where you have freedom
A place where you belong.
A place where you can feel confident about yourself
A place where you can express yourself
A place where there is laughter and joy

Home is where you have relationships and connections
A place where a secret could be locked
A place where you can be trusted
A place where I grew up
A place where there is peace and quiet.

At the thought of not having a home I start to cry
And every night be thankful for who I am and
That I have a beautiful home. Hopefully a family gets a beautiful a home.
