Being home is a safe feeling,
Warm and cozy inside
Like hot chocolate on a cold day
Fits like a glove.
It's like that old T-shirt
Worn, just beyond perfection
So comfortable you could wear it
Forever and ever.
Snuggling in front of a fire
Laughter and tears
Good times and bad
Where your heart is safe
Where time stands still.
There as you grow
Constant and true
Memories and dreams
Hopes and wishes come true

Well other than fact you can write free verse, I'd say you have your Mom's gift for words. (*wink*@Nan) This was a great read, I too love home. Welcome Stacie.

Hey, Miss StaciNESS! This poem brings me happiNESS! Makes ya wanna settle down with a big glass of not NESStle's Quick, y'know? And cuddle up with the blanky out of the wilderNESS of life!

I like these lines best:
"Good Thymes and bad"
and "Where Thyme stands still".

Obviously, you've inherited some of mom's artistic talents!

Welcome to Passions!

The simplicity of home is beautiful and something that can never be replaced.   My favorite thought in this poem is that your heart is always safe there. That, to me, is very true.

Welcome. It is wonderful to "meet" you. I can see you and your mother are both very blessed.

Stacie, welcome to passions! We've seen the talent that runs in your family with Nan's work and your grandmother's work. Nice to finally read something from you. (don't mind wayoutwalt, he's just drooling!).... I look forward to reading more from you!!! Please check your email for a special welcome!

Welcome  
This is wonderful, and I also wanted to say that I thought "Copper Care" was excellent!! Thank you so much for sharing your work. This poem reminded me of some of my happier times, thanks

Hey CBK #1...(cute blonde kid #1)

Nice to see you think home is a good place... Was it home that was good, or the old T-shirt full of holes??

Your home is good, too... What time is dinner? I want my corned beef & cabbage... It's Shamrock Day
