Home,Where the heart Is

Updated on May 30, 2013
Where the heart is to be found.
Where the heart is to be found.
Though our memories may fly there.
Though our memories may fly there.
Things change sometimes
Things change sometimes
Memories held within our minds
Memories held within our minds
fond days when were kids
fond days when were kids
We each must let them go
We each must let them go


The heart is where the home is found,

wherever we may so roam, or we go,

Though we all try to return there some day,

seems so strange to us, to show.



Within us each our memories are so held,

and here, only we are to know,

Always to change in its appearance,

and never quite the same, as we grow.



The times spent there were the grandest ones,

and all to be held down deep inside,

The growing up years, full of joys and tears,

shall in our memories, there to abide.



The running feet and fun filled days,

spent in warm Summers and the Springs,

Are the stuff of the richness, life has to hold,

and of a fine upbringing, it rings.



Our memories may fly to the far away times,

and to bring them back, if we could,

A fondest farewell we all must but give,

for it is the right thing and this we should.



To hold each year in a hand's firmest grip,

and in warming arms, within our minds,

This to be our own resolve, keeping its wonders,

the finest days, as then each so resigns.



Home is where the heart is to be found,

and we hold their memories within our mind,

There it shall remain and to be always the same,

as our many years shall all turn, in kind.

They will forever remain the same within our hearts and memories..
They will forever remain the same within our hearts and memories..

      I love your pics! The thoughts are great too. It is never the same, is it? When we leave home, to return once again to what once was. Only the memories are there, it seems. What we lived and know will always be within us, as home. Love the sentiment. Voted it up! : )

      How true how true and no doubt one of my favorite poetic meditations by you and as my dear mum used to say - be it ever so humble there's no place like home.

      Amen to that and god bless to you.

      “And in warming arms, within our minds,” Beautiful words. Though the physical presence of the home has changed, our memories and love of those times never will. Such lovely, timeless poetry. :-)
