Ode to the House

I once begged for just a simple hole
But you've become so much more
What with your fancy granite, your grand stair case and your beautiful dark wood floor

Your rooms we will fill with all of our personal things
we will turn you, House, into a home just to our liking

We will be sure to give you a great show as our family continues to age
it won't always be easy, but with all of our chapters of life, you'll be there on each page

We look forward to the warm nights around the fire that you'll provide
and down your driveway, on their bikes, our kids will ride.

We look forward with great anticipation to making you our new home
it was well worth the wait, here's to what was once just a hole wished for in a poem!
