The Meaning of Home

Home is the warmth of my parent’s love,
Home carries me peacefully like a sleeping dove.

Home shelters me like a blanket when it starts to storm,
It keeps me lulled and it keeps me warm.

It gives me smiles when I come back,
From a trip that gives me lack.

I am lucky to have not a house,
Not a mouse,
But a welcoming home.
That is why I write this, so people can have a caring home, so they do not have to roam.

Things that creep and make me scowl,
Have a home to shelter them when not on the prowl.

Many kids lulled to sleep,
With love in their hearts which they always keep.

We all write, we all sing, we all discuss,
To give other people a home like us.
