Home is

By , yarmouth, ME
Home is where
The sun comes out of hiding
The birds sing
You can snooze All Morning
Where you can
Stroll around
Wearing your “pajamas”
Home is where
Your heart is left
Even when you aren’t present
Home is where
You can chortle and snort
Really loud
And not a soul cares
Home is where
Your family is
Or if not family
Home is where you can
Create a pigsty
And might not bother
To clean it up
Right up until you realize
You’re having company
Home is where
You are safe
Home is where
Your heart beats a steady drum
The soft whisper of
“I love you”
It might not be to a
Or child
But maybe
To a dog
Or cat
Or even your fish Goldie
Home is where you
Shut your eyes
To the darkened silence
You’re safe
