Where you are never alone

A house is a structure,
So elegant and tall

But a home is a place
Where it’s okay to fall

It’s a place where you grow
So in the real world you will glow

When there are tough times
It gets easier to climb high

My home gives me wealth
Where I can be myself

With the fire crackling in the living room
My family loves me and helps me bloom

While my Father plays his guitar
I feel happy with where we are

As dinner is ready on the table
My home makes me feel cozy and stable

It’s my surroundings that make me smile
And remind me it’s all worth the while

A home is the memories we share
And the times when we feel aware

We are fortunate to have a home
And pray for those who are alone

You are never alone if you love your home.
