This is one of many poems that I was inspired to write about my life and my family. Enjoy.
I love being home where my family resides,
content in the structure where our love abides.
These windows and walls that keep us protected
surround us with comfort and keep us connected.
Home is the one place where I long to be
providing warm moments for my family,
the place where we gather and share conversations
of day~to~day small talk and "someday" vacations.
Home is where children learn values in life . . .
home is where we began as husband and wife.
Life is too short to not have a place
to grow with each other with laughter and grace.
As each year goes by we will never forget
the good times we share and the folks we have met.
In this place we call "home" it's where I long to be,
it's the gathering place for my family.
We'll always be humble and never outgrow
the walls that surround the love that we know.
Our family is growing in numbers this year,
but "home" will always be ever so near.
