To Feel At Home

I open the door, the sight is bright and happy

The people inside make the house lively

You think of a home as a structure with four walls

That’s really a house not a home at all

Houses have foundations made of stone and brick

A home is something a little more than this

Things do not build a home

It’s the people inside who make you feel less alone

Home is where the heart is

Where you feel safe and free

It’s a shame that a home is not guaranteed

I hope you get a home where you loved for who you are

Whether you fall asleep under a roof or under the stars
