The Meaning of Home

My home is precious to me
Shelter from the winter storms, safety, security
when I sleep it feels so soothing
Comforting me into dreams so I wake rested and eager
When I’m hungry, I know I can eat, nourishing body and soul
I never get bored, my imagination takes me places I never knew
My warm bath prepares me for slumber, cleansed and relaxed
As I drift off to sleep, I think about those less fortunate
And wish that everyone could have a precious home
