Home Sweet Home

this old house,

its lights dim

with each passing day,

aging bones creak

and yawn, while

seduced by

a patinaed facade

Oh, the stories,

their essence drifts

like the aroma

of freshly baked bread

warming the cockles

of one’s heart

nestled where quaint

meets cozy,

its cherished charm

becomes one

with life forever

etched in our soul
