The Meaning of Home

The Meaning of Home

By: Kiele Blaak


Home is a warm place.

Home is a place where there’s lots of space.

You can spend time with family and friends,

right until the day ends.

You can turn out the light

then crawl into your bed for the night.

Your head sinks into the fluffy pillow.

You hug your teddy armadillo.

Home is tasting your favorite food.

Home makes you happy when you’re in a bad mood.

When it snows outside and you’re cold,

don’t forget what you’ve been told.

That when you’re having a bad day,

You always have somewhere warm to stay!
