Meaning of Home

Meaning of home

By Van Pritchard

In my home I can hear my cat

purring by the fire as he sleeps.

I can hear music playing in the dining room.

I can see the fireplace burning quietly in the living room.

I can smell good food in the oven,

and needles on the Christmas tree.

I can taste good food, cat hair, drinks, and treats.

I can feel happiness knowing that I am safe in my home.

When I am in my home, I have a sense that I am loved and cared for, and that is why I love it so much.
