The Comfort of Home

Home is a place where I can feel safe and comfortable. As the fireplace makes me warm,
I realize that I am privileged to have a home where I have memories.
I watch the street lights turn on from my living room, thinking how cold it must be. I’m lucky that I don’t have to be out there.
I hear my mom’s voice when I wake up, it really comforts me when I know I have family, and a home where I feel safe and warm.
It’s not just the home that makes it feel safe,
it’s the people who are in it.

Home is the place where I had my first steps, my first words.
My home is where I was raised, That’s what makes it feel so special.
