The Meaning of Home

We’ve all been there,
We all know where.
A space to be happy in company or alone.
A place called home.
Home is cozy and sweet,
with food to eat.
With family around,
to make lots of sound.
Home can be a place where you can stay outside.
Without a roof,
without walls,
but the feeling of pride.
Home can be as calm as a river,
or as loud as my class,
but don’t you worry,
it won’t shatter the glass.
I love my home because my sister is there,
with her fun,
her excitement,
and her short curly hair.
Home is not only a place with a roof and some walls,
it’s a feeling,
a space,
to which my heart calls.
