The Meaning of Home

The joyful breeze swings here and there

Home, fulfilled with happiness, is always here.

Home for love, home for life,

Home for cozy music like the fife.

To do the chores you’re meant to do,

you need a home like a cow needs to moo.

Home is like light, making way through the darkness,

The sunshine brightens the people who have less.

Home is important it’s deep in the middle of your heart,

Without any damage, not a bullet or a dart.

So, whenever I hear life and home,

I start to cry like prayers in Rome.
