Poem – A Dream of Home

Greetings! Somehow another Saturday has rolled around, and I find that I have been home for four weeks now. I’m not entirely sure how that happened, but then time has a habit of slipping through my fingers like sand, so I really shouldn’t be surprised at this point. πŸ˜€Β 

Today I’m going to share a poem with you on the topic of home – inspired by the fact that I am currently home and loving it. πŸ˜€ This poem gives a small glimpse into one of the many dreams that I cherish close to my heart regarding my future. – a home full of children of my own. I know that I’m still many years away from this dream being realized, but it doesn’t hurt a girl to hope and dream… πŸ™‚Β 


I dream of a house full of laughter and lively noise,

where there are more children than bathrooms

and where bedtime is a loud and crowded affair.


I dream of a house full of wooden blocks and crayoned artwork,

where miniature artists rub shoulders with tiny architects

and creating beauty comes naturally.


I dream of a house full of sunshine and the sweet aroma

of chocolate chip cookies and chubby newborn cheeks

that nestle warm against me.


I dream of a house where singing is our second language,

where music bursts out of every room and dancing is

second only to hugging.


I dream of a house full of children and love,

full of stray socks and scattered toys and stacks of books –

full of the bright anticipation of the future.


Do you love children too? What is one of your dreams that you have for your future? I’d love to hear from you in the comments! πŸ™‚

  1. Awww, this was so sweet, Hannah.
    Yes! I adore my siblings… although sometimes I wish I had some younger children around, too!
    A dream I used to have was either fostering or running a low-technology school for needy children. I don’t think the Lord is leading me towards that now, but maybe someday!

  2. You’re dreaming of a home full of children, laughter, music, sunshine, sweet aromas, love, etc. because I believe you have come to value these ingredients in a home. They have brought you much joy for 19 years. So you want them to be what will make your home a home. I will pray God would be pleased to have your dreams come true – in His time.:)
