To some just four walls and a roof

For me you’re my abode

A shell entwined in history

My sanctuary owned

A shelter from the storms of life

The playhouse in the rain

A haven to a higher world

The spiral so insane

Lessons so invaluable

I learned within these walls

The laughter of humanity

The cries from life’s cruel falls

Echoes from yesteryear

Chime around the room

Voices that have long departed

Lift me from the gloom

The years they pass too quickly

Some memories will cease

Yet the welcome guarantee you give

Is my homely inner peace
