Home welcomes me every evening with eyes wide and glowing with happy light.   
Home’s smile is wide – inviting me into the familiar sights, smells, and sounds. 
Once inside, her hug is warm and comforting, I feel safe and loved. 
She takes care of me with shelter and protects all I own and has all I need. 
She lets me lay my head down to rest with complete ease and watches over me until I wake to start another day.

Dear LaNae,

I was excited to read your poem, as I wanted to see your unique description of what home is to you. It seems everyone has different definitions or associations with the word “home”, and I enjoyed reading your personal definition.

One line that stood out to me from your poem was “She lets me lay my head down to rest with complete ease and watches over me until I wake to start another day.” Your personification of home is very sweet and makes me happy that I am in my home right now, about to lay my own head down.

Your poem also reminds me of my childhood home.

Thank you for your poem.
