Home is Where the Heart is

Home. A warm welcome smile always waiting for me.

I see joy. Not a shelter with furniture.

I hear laughter. Not yelling or screaming.

I hear encouraging words. Not put downs.

I see hope. A future to build on. Not anything to be ashamed about.

I feel safe, happy, warm and fuzzy just like where my heart is now. Home.

Home. A place where dreams from my heart come true.

Home. My talents and hopes are recognized by others.

Home. My school. My family. My friends. All is well when I am there and that is where my heart is.
