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.
