The meaning of home

There is a place called home,

In the backyard may be a garden gnome,

The difference it has from a house,

That you have a dad and his spouse,

Help when your going through hard times,

And of course bedtimes .-.,

The are always ready to back you up,

You go on adventures with your pup,

So the meaning is a safe place,

Where sometimes you smash a vase,

A place to call your own,

Well that, that is a home,

Where family is always there,

To back you up even if you fight a bear,

The things that you may do,

Endless like the bills that are due,

Well, I’ve explained what I know,

I must say goodbye that is so.
