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!
