What Home Means to Me

Home is more than a place where you live.
It is a place where memories
Upon memories are made.

Home is a place to have fun.
Whether it is dancing or skating
Or just reading books.

Home is where my dog greets me at the door
With her eager, gentle face.
My best friend.

Home is a place where you feel
Cozy and safe,
And can share your feelings when you are afraid.

Home is a place where I step into my room and a light, sweet smell greets me.
My room is my place to concentrate on the big things in life.
My room is private, quiet and my very own.

Home is a place where you are loved.
It is a place where smiles shine down
And you are encouraged to keep pressing on.

Home is a place where you can be you.
You don’t have to hide anything
Or feel unsure.

Home is much more than a place where you live.
