I Wish I had a Home

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.



I Wish I had a Home

I wish I had a home

A place to lay my tired head at nights

And someone to cover me with the blanket under the starry skies

I wish I had a home

A place where love was served on wake

Where my pillow would be my boat on the dream lake

I really wish I had a home

With family that ruffled my hair

And a nudge on the shoulder with a pat on the back would tell me they care

With a cute little dog that barked at the mail

And a Cat relaxing in the tree licking his lips at the picture of a whale

How happy I would be, with a home like that

And people would come by

With apple pies

And stand on the welcome mat

I would wake early in the mornings, and make omelettes and different teas

And maple syrups on pancakes would be calling the bees

I wish I had a home

A Place where I could enjoy soup while watching the rain

And count every drop from the sky as they hit the earth grains

I would be a happy man

A man with a place of my own

I truly wish I really had a home.

Thanks Frank

Sorry Clive, I thought I left a comment here, read this one several days ago, as always very well written

As with anything in life Eric. Even our very lives have to be maintained

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on March 15, 2018:

Beautifully done.

But I must warn that having a home is a pain in the butt. Plumbing, electrical, roof repairs, appliances -- a home is a money pit.

Thanks Flourish and Venkatachari

Clive.... I hate to burst your bubble but you must wait in line with the rest of us. Just sit back and relax while you wait to become old, tired, ornery and confused. At that point is when MOST of us are finally placed in a "home." Keep smiling until then. Peace!

I hope you get everything you dream of.

Venkatachari M from Hyderabad, India on March 14, 2018:

Wow! A wonderful wish really worth enjoying.

Clive, I wish your wish becomes a true reality.

Blessings for a Happy Home.
