Here In This Home
The house sits still and silent tonight
all that is visible is the down stairs
that's dim with an amber, glowing light
and the fruit bowl filled with golden pears.
Quietly I sit in the driveway and view
a home with so much love and dreams
like a blooming rose bud that's brand new
so much potential on the new day's schemes.
A warm and safe feeling overwhelms my heart
so many memories have been made in this home
If made to pick one, I wouldn't know where to start
my mind would just through the years roam.
I feel it's extended arms at the end of the day
offering safety and warmth welcoming me in
another long day's work with such little pay
here in this home, love, life and family begin.
