HomeSure, it's small,
but to us, it's cozy.
Yes, there's a lot of traffic here,
but, well, you get used to it.
It's kind of a mess,
but I'll tidy up just as soon as I get the chance.
What you can't see
is the perfection of light in the mornings.
You can't know
the lingering warmth in the early evenings.
And I'm sure you can't imagine
our view of the stars when the rest of the world is dark.
