A place of undying love
And ready acceptance
Where comfort lies
In your mother’s eyes
And your father’s voice
Where sisters laugh and fight
Over clothes and TV channels.

Where I return to
Every time I need comfort
And unquestioning, insatiable love
Where I find solace
In my mother’s cool touch
And my father’s tight hug.

A place I will constantly return to
But where I’ll never remain
Because home is where
Love completely forbids
The freedom to get hurt,
Make mistakes and
Break my heart.
