Meaning of Home

My home is special to me,
It’s where I’m accepted, you see.
It’s where I feel safe and happy
Even when everything isn’t snappy.

My home is where I can have fun
With my mum.
Its where I get good advice
And learn to be nice.

My home is where its okay to make a mistake
Like the time dad and I burnt a cake.
Sometimes we don’t agree,
But we settle it over a cup of tea.

My home is where we welcome guests,
A place to rest after daily quests.
I have a younger sister at home,
We play together and she makes me groan.

My home is precious to me,
I can sing and laugh with glee.
Even when I move away,
In my heart my home will stay.
