Meaning of Home

“And my heart soars”

The beauty of my home
The softness of its love
The smell of chocolate chip cookies
Speaks to me

The peacefulness in my room,
The memories of home,
The love of my family
Speaks to me

The warmth of encouragement,
The strength of togetherness,
The past, present and the future
Speaks to me

The freedom of home
The acceptance of being myself
The feeling of being unique
Speaks to me

And my heart soars.

“And my heart soars” a line taken from Chief Dan George’s poem.
