Home is Where the Heart is

Home is where the heart is
That saying’s not amiss
Home is where I go to
When my heart’s a dark abyss
My mom will ask what happened
She will ask if something’s wrong
My heart will warm to see her
And I’ll feel like I belong
“No.” I’ll say and sit down
“Everything is fine.
You made me feel better, and you didn’t even try.”
My dad comes home much later,
And I open up the door
His hands are pretty cold now
But that I just ignore
I hug him as he greets me
And he hugs me in return
He sits down on the sofa
And asks”What did you learn?”
