(For my church family)
“Home is where the heart is,”
Or at least, it seems to me,
That I have heard somewhere before
About what a home should be.
A home should be a friendly place,
Where a person can be free
To grow and to develop
Into all that they should be.
A home should be a warm embrace,
Someone showing that they care,
A light that’s burning in the night,
As you come in from anywhere.
A home should be a relaxed place,
Where you can kick back and just “be,”
Where secrets shared are secrets kept
In gently loving intimacy.
A home should be a welcome smile
When you come in tired at night,
And a home should be an encouraging hug
As you go out in early light.
A home doesn’t have to be a building,
Or an address on some street,
For I have heard a home can be
Wherever loving hearts meet.
