my haven

There is a place where i am always at home
its my safe haven where i am never alone

It’s not just a structure anymore it’s surrounded by
The glow of happy memories and kind faces

Its mine where i have put down sturdy roots
Like boots firmly planted on the ground

You can’t stay long each day you have to test experiment learn grow
But even the best has to end and you can go home once again

The outside world is where i can follow my heart like a lark flying free
But the most free bird has to come back to Its nest in the end
to grow strong and mend once again

But even if you stay at home every day
you’ll still be loved in every way

My family we have faith
that we will keep each other safe

Even when thing get really tight
it can still be very bright
