We are a Home

Foundation. Family. Unity

Windows shut their eyes,

From the troubled world.

The carpet presses down,

To keep out harmful talk.

Bold kettle boiling,

Finds rest for you and me.

Plates and cutlery,

Dance tango as we dine.

Our home sits calm,

Near rough shores

Breathing eternal wisdom.

Sleeping on rose petals,

As man of the house

Rises early, to fill a day’s work.

Woman of the house smiles,

Over a load of laundry,

Honored to be of service.

Child spurts in playfulness,

As parents watch over him

With complete, tender love.

Doors hold by the hand

And kiss the ceiling.

Lamp timidly steps out,

When a book is read,

After all, it is an imitation

Of the glorious sunlight,

And so is our home,

An imitation of God’s love.
