What does home mean to me?

A home is a place where family lives out their days
Some family of mine lives in a bay
Our roof means a lot to me
My roof keeps the rain off me and my family
Snow and sleet slide freely off the roof
Some families across the globe have no roofs
So it breaks my heart to see people with no roofs
That’s the only reason people right these poems
Because when I write this letter 10 bucks will help the poor
The poor should have all a house
To keep family and friend dry and warm
