Why Home?

Why Home?

What is a home to you?
I know what a home is to me
The meaning of home is different for every person in every way
Home is a place of peace
It is a safe space to express your feelings
The question we all ask ourselves
Why home?
Why is home the place you always wanna be?
Home is filled with the people you hold close to your heart
When you are at home you feel happy and full of joy
Home is full of memories and the people of the past
Those you lost and will always remember will be with you at home
Home is where they will want you to be because…
Home isn’t just a word, it is a word with great power
When I step into my home, I smell roast chicken in the oven or
Freshly baked muffins waiting to be eaten
Mom and Dad running to give you a hug and ask you…
“How was school?”
Stepping outside…!
Jumping on the trampoline with my brother
Doing flips and trying to double bounce each other
Jumping so high I feel like I am flying!
Sitting at the table with my family eating the delicious
Apple crumble that my mom always makes
And most of all seeing my family laugh all together as joy fills the room
Why home?
This is why
A house is a house until the home moves in…
We are all the home every house needs
