This Special Place


My home is not the building, it’s the people who care.
Who will love me forever and ever, no matter where.

My home is not quiet, it’s loud and full of life.
With all of my siblings, my dad and his wife.

My home is where I’ve lived and I’ve grown.
The heart is the people, and the house is the bones.

My home is where I feel compassion and love.
A: It’s special. B: It’s fun. C: It’s silly. D. All of the above

My home is safe with no intruders or thieves.
I am blessed to have a home, it’s beyond belief.

I hope others have a special place to be, just like me.
