What Home Means To Me

Home isn’t a place where you simply go and stay,

Or just a place to work or play.

It’s not just a place to eat breakfast or dinner.

Or a place to display your trophies to tell everyone, “guess what? I’m a winner!”

It’s something much more than this,

It’s a feeling, a feeling of bliss.

Home is safety, home is a gift,

A place that makes my spirits lift.

We are very lucky for where we live

And for that we need to respect and give.

Some people don’t get to go to home,

For they have to wander the streets and roam.

They may not stay in just one place.

They switch from one place to another, without a trace.

So please, be thankful for the love that you get

And there is much, much more to come to you yet!
