Treasure Island

They say there's no place like home, I believe that
But my home is not where last night I sat
My home is not where I keep my things
My home is not where my doorbell rings
My home is not where my memories lie
Where I grew up in sorrow and the years wondered by
Home is a magical place that I've found
And now it's discovered I will always be bound
It surrounds me with warmth like a comforting dome
Being wrapped in your arms is where I call my home
My life makes more sense, the world seems more true
I love my home and I really love you

    I love the rhymes and the rhythm that comes with the good ones. This is a pleasure to read. I wish all writing was this easy to read. This was concise as
    well. That is very important. The ending was outstanding. That was the key.
    Wonderful!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
