Home Means to Me

Walking up the back porch
Yelling I’m home.
So quiet for a split second
Then I hear my mom reply,
How was your day?
I reply, amazing.

My cat coming up to me.
Rubbing his head.
Reading a book,
Cat curled up on my leg.

Making a fire with my dad,
Warm and prudent I always am.
Thinking how toasty and how lucky I am.
Being loved by my family anywhere.
Always thinking about all 8 hamsters I’ve had.

Walking down to my room,
Getting in bed.
Feeling how lucky to have a roof over my head.
And that is what my home means to me.
