I have built a house
Without sand and with out water.
My mother’s love has created the walls.
Its floor and the roof are so strong,
Just like the arms of my father.
My sister’s laughter bring joy,
Through the doors and the windows.
My brother’s eyes, light up the house
This is my family and my home,
My home is the sweetest of all the homes.¾
