Home Is



Home is where your heart is These words are often used No matter where you travel Whichever path you choose A cheery morning greeting With sleep still in your eyes Scrambled eggs for breakfast Delicious homemade pies A friendly chat with neighbours Reviewing the latest news Tender words of sympathy On days you're feeling blue Nothing's more appealing Than a tasty home cooked meal The squeal of kiddies' laughter The happiness that you feel A comforting hug of sympathy When you're day is going bad The cherished words, “I love you” Which take away the sad A home is not so much a place But a reflection of the heart When you're with the one you love Your passion is off the charts © Jack Ellison 2012

    Home is were the heart is... but I've got the volcano blues... Every thing is erupting since I got back home this last day or two... My blood pressure was a soaring but then it settled down... There's no place like home... with family all around. Your friend...

    Yes, "home is where your heart is". So true, especially being around those you love. That is where you find enjoyment, happiness, and self fulfillment. That's where you can be the best. So enjoyed! Have a great day, Jack. I have the flu so I am stuck at home today. Love ya, Toquyen
