Home, the Best Place to be

Home: The Best Place to be

My home is the place where I build up my biggest dreams. When I dream of it……
I dream of a home that is like a loving friend who will never go away.
I dream of a home that always lifts me up to try again when I fall down.
I dream of a home that provides a feeling of warmth, as warm as a fireplace, and as warm as my mother’s hug.
I dream of a home that always provides a path I can see, a path that leads me to hope and safety.
I dream of a home where I can always smell fresh, and soothing air that is as soft as a comfy pillow.
I dream of a home that tastes as sweet as a delicious chocolate, but even at the hottest times, it never melts away.
I dream of a home where I can hear soothing music that helps me drift off to sleep, knowing that there is nothing to be afraid of.
I dream of a home that always brings me joy, where I can laugh and play happily all day without any worries.
But I am lucky. I don’t need to dream of such a place, because my home is all of these things, and my home is not a dream.
