    They say can hang your hat there
    you can also hang your head
    and someone there will care
    if a silent tear is shed
    Home
    It's more than an abode
    it's where you can be free
    to live by your own code
    away from society
    Home
    Where I can pray to my Lord
    and others can do the same
    a prayer of my own accord
    I lovingly praise his name
    Home
    More than a place where you sleep
    But a place where the spirit can invigorate
    a safe haven while counting sheep
    and after peaceful dreams rejuvenate
    Home
    It's where the heart is
    It's where our minds meet
    and my soul locks into his
    with a welcome mat under our feet
    Home is the comfortable feeling I get
    when I think of you and emit a sigh...
    at this point I'll relax and just let
    my sweet home drift into your sky

    Watz,

    This made me think of how I feel when I am away from home too long. Home is my comfort and my sanctuary. Thank you for sharing this.
