What Home Is To Me

Home is more than shelter
It is way more than that
It’s where we bond and grow,
Laugh, love, and chat

Homes are more than frames made of wood or cement
What’s important is the love you fill it with that makes your heart content
Home is like a guardian protecting and sheltering us from harm
Really without a home, I would feel sad, dark, and full of alarm

I cherish all the things my home has done for me
All the memories, movies, and happy family times guaranteed
I never want to let go of this place I call home
I wish I could give this feeling of love to someone who always has to roam
