Home: A Wedding Poem
One of my best friends recently married and is moving to Switzerland with her new Swiss husband. She will be moving to a country where she knows no one and does not speak the language. She asked me to write a poem to read during the wedding ceremony and since they are moving away I focused on the idea of home.
Home is not a location,
a dot on the map,
clothes, books, and dishes,
are not a home.
Home is your future,
Where dreams begin,
Where tomorrows become yesterdays.
A home is where you live, yes.
But it is also where you laugh,
where you love,
where,sometimes, you hurt.
Possessions are easily bought.
a home must be fought for,
Home is indeed where your heart is,
Today you marry your heart.
