What Home Means To Me

What home means to me
Is having a cozy place to sleep
Where I can be free
warm and safe and peaceful.

Home is a place where things are alright
Even when things seem bad
You are okay in the middle of the night
Even when you are upset.

Home is a place
Where you are always safe
Where you have your own space
Where you can rest or play.

A place to celebrate
With all your friends
Where there is no hate
Where you have family who are there for you.

There is a difference between a home and a house
A house is just a building
A home where there is not a mouse
But only you can make a house a home.
