The Essence Of Home

Children laughing,
Dinner cooking.
Parents standing there overlooking.
Kids play fight, bashing and thrashing.
Come here, hang out, it’s pretty relaxing.

The meals here are always gourmet,
There’s no reason to go to a café.
The aroma of dinner wafts by,
I wonder what’s for dessert tonight,
Maybe pie?

My bedroom is my favourite hangout,
With lots of places to sit and unwind.
Have fun, call out, it’s not time to pout!
You can do anything here, bear in mind!
Run around, sit down, read a book or shout.

Home is the safest place I know,
Home is the best place to learn and grow…
