What Makes Our Home?

What makes our home...ours?
Our house, the furniture,
The new cutlery or the picture frame
The matching curtain or the uncanny rug
What makes our home..ours?

The games, the fights,
Rock, paper, scissor OR hide and seek
The pile of clothes and the showing of teeth
The laughs the tears
The stories the fears
The collectibles, the memories,
What makes our home...ours?

The handprints on the wall
Or the imprints on our heart
The nicely stacked book case
Or the storybook hiding behind the vase

The tip toe of tiny feet in the afternoon
The shoo the shaa of little voices
Hiding behind the cabinet
Lost in wonderland
Refusing to sleep

The stories, the tickles
The tantrums and the giggles
What makes our home...ours?

Our hands held below the table
The footsie or the remote fight
The stolen hug, the caress,
Goodbyes and welcomes
The late night drives
Or our impromptu  jives
The cold of the night
Or the warmth of the heart
What makes our home...ours



It is you, it is me,
It is us
We are our home
We are our world
Our home is ours because we are together
Seasons will change
Regions will change
Colors will fade
Black will become grey
Grey will become invisible
But hearts bonded for life
Destinies linked for life
This all will remain our miracle
We will remain us

We will make our home..ours forever

  5. Awww.. that made me smile! How simply beautiful!!

    A house becomes a home when there is love in it and you have expressed that so nicely :)

  6. What a great poem. You are correct. The stuff, even the games and memories don't make the home. The people make the home. Locations may change, but home always stays the same. It's where your family is.

    1. Yes and we give so much importance to worldly material things, we ignore the most important things in our life. Our home, our life is our family, our togetherness. Things would come and go, relationships won't. Thanks Carrie :)

  7. It's the people and the relationships that make a house a home. I have lived with flatmates over the last decade and with some, it's been a house and occasionally, been a home. Nice free write!
