What I Call Home

What I Call Home

To me
Home is a place
Where I come to after a school day.

It’s where I want to be
When times are tough
But knowing that it will be okay

A place to share my feelings
Happy, mad, or sad with my family

Home is a place
Where I can sing with my ukulele
And my dad is playing the guitar
Right beside me

A place that’s cozy
Where you can feel safe
To continue talking about your day

About the day
That’s been going on
And how it turned out to be so long

A warm supper
On a clean plate, a funny movie
And some dessert to eat

Home is simply a place
Where we all feel safe
And I hope that Habitat for Humanity
Will help in that way
