the Meaning of Home

The meaning of home to me is love, to be safe and
secure like a soft dove
A place where everyone matters, and where
everyone uses manners.
A place where old friends reunite and where all new
ones come together.
A place with no mopes but with all talents and hopes.
A place for all my tears, and for all my fears.
A place where I am warm, and in comfort during a storm.
Where dreams come true with beams of melon
due, and teams play without you.
Where laughs run like rivers, and blankets hold your
Home is a place with no shame, and you
receive no blame.
