Meaning of Home

Home is where my heart is

Home is where my heart is
Its warm, safe, and kind
It always shelters me
It’s always on my mind

Home gives me food to eat
and drinks to quench my thirst
When people ask me what I love
my home is what comes first

I’m lucky to have a place to sleep
while others just have ground
I’m allowed to let my speech flow free
While others can’t make a sound

When I sleep in my bed at night
I feel like my mind has drifted away
But it always brings me back
To the place I’ll always want to stay

My home stays in my heart
And my heart stays in my home
