For some, home is the shelter of four sturdy walls
With memories infused into photo-lined halls
Miscellaneous clutter as a cozy centerpiece
A comfortable mix of chaos and peace.
For some, home is a feeling of safe security
With the warmth of a fire and plenty to eat
Beloved paw prints etched on wooden floors
Surrendering all worries and cares at the door.
For some, home is the familiarity of a face
Arms wrapped around shoulders in a warm embrace
The belonging of a likeminded, supportive tribe
A sense of community within the place you reside.
Wherever your feet find a place to take root
Whether a far-distant dream or an absolute
Life gently nudges us in the direction we roam
Toward the very things we will always call home.
