    I found this tweedy in the first stanza (personal taste) but the second stanza it came into it's own with thought provoking truths. (Report) Reply

    A man may buy a house, but its the woman who turns it into a home with love, sacrifice, hard chores to put the home in order. So {Home} & {Love} are the prerogative of the woman who has tied up with the man to start a family.Its true these two important words_____ Homa & Love are interconnected. Simple byut beautiful poem.

    Very nice that he was able to identify these two words out of all of them.
    Personally, I agree that these are the two most 'complete' words out there - purely in their feeling and uncompromising, agreeable adoration. (Report) Reply

    I enjoy the subject of the poem and the basic idea behind each of the lines, but I feel like it could've been worded better. (Report) Reply

    Home without Love is bitterness;
    Love without Home is often pain....
    honest words from the depth of a loving heart... (Report) Reply
