What Home Means to Me

Home is a place that’s safe and sound,

Built with wood and on the ground.

No matter what the time of day,

Home is always a safe place to stay.

Fur on the couch and fur on my bed,

Sometimes I even wake up with fur on my head!

Pets are always there for you,

to calm you down and keep you warm too!

Home is a place that’s safe and sound,

Built with wood and on the ground.

No matter what the time of day,

Home is always a safe place to stay.

Family is a precious thing,

woven through the years.

Of memories and togetherness,

laughter, love, and tears.

No matter where we roam,

Family draws us close to those we love,

And pulls our hearts to home.

Home is a place that’s safe and sound,

Built with wood and on the ground.

No matter what the time of day,

Home is always a safe place to stay.

A place that I can think and a place that is quiet.

My bedroom of course! Where I hide from all the riot.

A place I can rest my arms and my legs,

because if I didn’t, my limbs might snap like twigs!

Home is a place that’s safe and sound,

built with wood and on the ground.

No matter what the time of day,

home is always a safe place to stay.

Home is sweet, home is sour.

In my house, we are cooking every hour.

Pots and pans and banging too,

cinnamon buns, brownies and stuff that looks like goo!

Home is a place that’s safe and sound,

built with wood and on the ground.

No matter what the time of day,

Home is always a safe place to stay.
