AHome or a House!

Home or a House!

By Dr Ahmed Adam

I like my house, but I love my home

A house is made up of bricks and stones
But a home is made up of flesh and bones

A house is built with layers of bricks
But a home is built with layers of people

A house is a piece of Real Estate in your street
But a home is a piece of Real Estate in your Heart

A house is cold and empty
But a home is warm and lively

A house is made beautiful by furniture
But a home is made beautiful by those that you love

A house is a place for shelter
But a home is a shelter for your heart

A house has got property value
But a home is something that you value

A house has a price
But a home is priceless

A house has a rug and a ceiling
But a home has a hug and a feeling

A house is held together by cement and plaster
But a home is held together by love and laughter

A house is a place that nourishes your body
But a home is a place that nourishes your soul

A house is merely a collection of rooms
But a home is a powerful collection of memories

A house is held up by roof beams
But a home is held up by lofty dreams

A house is where you can walk around without a shoe
But a home is where everyone understands you

A house is a place where the paint is peeling
But a home is a place that is full of feeling

A house is a place that you can lease
But a home is a place where you can find peace

A house is a place for entertaining and socialising
But a home is a place where you don’t have to say anything

A house may not look like a castle on the inside and outside
But a home is a place where everyone is treated royally

A house is a place where you go to sleep at night
But a home is a place where someone worries when you don’t come home

A house is often a one year project
But a home is usually a life-long project

A house can be replaced
But a home is irreplaceable

A house can be rented, bought and sold
But a home is more precious than diamonds and gold

The best places in the world can be exotic and thrilling
But there is no place that is as sweet as home.
