-A Home-

A home to live. A home of love.
A welcomed refuge, this velvet glove.
And a home enveloped with family to care.
For a shoulder to cry when times are unfair.

A home of warmth by a hearth's heartlight.
For sharing in both good and when life may smite.
A home of peace and to close a door.
To shun a troubled world for an hour, or more.

To those where a home is but a house of pain,
a wish of comfort in your times of rain.
But a home can part your hardship grays.
One ray of joy will show the way.

A home gives life, though shines much more.
This home of my family...This home I adore.
Author's Note
I just feel so fortunate to have a home and family. I was inspired to write this and to hang it in our Family Room.
