What a Home Means to Me!

When home comes to mind, I think of friends.
When home comes to mind, I think of family.
When home comes to mind, I think of brothers and sisters.
When home comes to mind, I think of hope.
When home comes to mind, I think of joy.
When home comes to mind, I think of peace and love.
When home comes to mind, I think of all the above.

A home is always a safe place.
A home is always a place to be safe.
My home is always safe for me and my family too.

A home is a place to be cared for.
If someone has been hurt.
Or if someone has hurt you.

A home is a place to have faith,
in what you or others do.
And faith in your parents for keeping you safe.

A home is a place to love,
to love siblings and parents.
And to love friends and foes.

A home is a place where love abounds.
A home is a place where you can cry.
A place where you are safe!
A place where you can be cared for.
A place where you have faith.
And a place where you can be with family.
A home is all of the above!

Do you have a home?
If you don’t just ask,
because I believe you are up to the task.
Believe, just try,
then a home will pop up before your very eyes!

You and everyone else should have a home exactly like mine!
