“Where Home Is”


Home is where light is, even if it is dark outside.

Home is the warmth of the sun. It is the kindness of a touch.

Home is not a physical being. It is a state of mind.

Home is a place where one finds peace, and experiences communion, companionship and empathy. It is the delight of a presence, and the nurturing smell of sharing thoughts.

Home can be empty of people; filled with one’s emotions towards these people’s presence though.

Home is where one goes at the end of the night when other doors are closed behind her.

It is a place that she goes back to it after she has gone all over the world to gain what she needed and could not find any. Because home has all she needs in itself.

Home is light.

Home is hope.
