The Meaning of Home

The meaning of home is a warm feeling,
That you feel when you are loved,
Safe and cared for.

The meaning of home is fun,
Whether it is playing with friends,
Or wrestling with siblings,
Or even watching a show,
Home is a place of freedom,
And always a place of joy.

The meaning of home is somewhere where there are no secrets, shhhh,
Among you,
Your family, and even your dog!

The meaning of home is a safe place,
A place protected,
A place where you feel untouchable by a storm,
And you make everyone else feel invincible.

The meaning of home is a place to always be comfortable,
No matter who you are with,
No matter what you are doing,
Because at home,
Everyone is welcomed and understood.

The meaning of home is somewhere to bond,
By working with family,
By playing with pets or siblings.

The meaning of home is a place of disagreement,
It is true,
But it is because family cares for you.

The meaning of home is a place of growth,
Mentally as well as physically,
By listening to others,
By experiencing events,
Helping others grow.

The meaning of home is somewhere to go,
If you are feeling sad,
If you are feeling mad,
If you are feeling delighted,
A place where there is always an open door.

Because at home, everyone loves everyone.
