My Home Song

I love my Home
If you listen close enough you can hear it sing
But it doesn’t need words to say anything
It’s upbeat with the excitement of busy days and running feet
It’s lullaby melody at night while everyone is fast asleep
It’s song may sound different to everyone it meets

You see my Dad lived in this house when he was small
And before him my grandfather grew up in this house, but that’s not all…
My great grandmother lived here at one point too
It was moved here by two tractors when my grandfather was two
So you see, my house is very old not new
It’s walls filled with love as each family grew

If I listen really close I can hear it sing
It’s my Home, with my brothers and parents
My Everything
