My Meaning of Home

My home is more than walls and a roof.
It is where my family is,
My mom and dad.
My little brother,
And Murphy, my dog.

My home is more than walls and a roof.
It’s where my family is,
It’s where my little brother sings at the top of his lungs in the shower.
Then spends all day building a fort on his bunk bed.

My home is more than walls and a roof.
It’s where my family is,
It is where you can hear my laughter flow through the hallways,
As my dad tickles me and tells his ‘dad’ jokes.

My home is more than walls and a roof.
It’s where my family is,
My mom hugs me when I am sad or hurt,
And we cuddle while we watch our favorite shows.

My home is more than walls and a roof.
It’s where my family is,
Where every day I get greeted by a wagging tail
And you better not say the word walk unless you mean it.

My home is more than walls and a roof.
It’s where my family is,
It is where I relax in my room when I feel angry or sad.
Where we watch movies and eat pizza every Friday till it gets too late.

My home is more than walls and a roof.
It’s where my family is,
Where we spend the summers riding our bikes around the block,
And play in the backyard making mud cakes in sand buckets.

My home is more than walls and a roof.
It’s where my family is,
Where I go to sleep after my mom and dad kiss me good night.
And wake up I am still in the comfort of my home.

My home is more than walls and a roof.
It’s where my family is.
