Our place

Our Home

Home is walking through the door

And arms are open wide

It’s taking off the outdoor mask

No problem has to hide.

*

Home is kicking off the shoes

Relaxing on a chair

Silence never lasts for long

Home is when you’re there.

*

Home is where we share the truth

Of a bad day or a dream

Home is being visible

A place where I am seen.

*

Home is chaos now and then

When gathering our crowd

Noisy parties, ones we love

Familiar and loud.

*

Home is where we take good care

To let ideas take root

I hope to nurture all your dreams

And watch your plans bear fruit.

*

Sometimes home is turbulent

It’s not avoiding every fight

It’s being safe to share our views

Not proving who is right.

*

Home is not a building

It’s nothing if pristine

It’s safety, warmth and comfort

Not somewhere to keep clean.

*

Home’s a place to eat, to sleep,

To dance, to write, to read

A place to look back fondly on

Wherever life may lead.
