The Meaning Of Home

Home isn’t a place or a shelter. Home is where you can find someone that you love and someone that loves you.
Home is safe home is free, home is where my family will be.
When I come home I’m not alone.
I grew here with no fear.
My friends are near but not in fear. They know that when they are near I am here. I am here to keep them safe from that cold dark scary place. I will be waiting sitting at home where my family is, where my heart can feel warm. They make me feel safe and they make me feel loved. I know what a home is and I know how it feels. Where you are loved is a perfect home. I can be loved but cold and wet and it will feel like home as long as my family will be by my side. As long as my family is here or near I am home.
