A place where you can practice your piano, violin or singing that no matter how badly it sounded, you would still get standing ovations. A place where you can stack all your piles of books and papers scattered everywhere and study late night. A place which the phone number you would never forget. A place which you could get back to or move around with your eyes closed. A place where you were being fed, chased around while you were still wearing diaper, where you learnt your first words, first steps. A place with the corner you knocked your head on when you were just three. A place where your smelly pillow, blankie is. A place where you were jumping around with your first pet. A place which is the background in your photos through the years. A place which smells so familiar. A place which feels so familiar. A place that will protect you from many physical harms, "bad people", intruders, faces you want to avoid at the moment.
A place where you have a permanent corner to spend time with God. A place where you can talk to Him in whatever way you want. A place where you somehow feel you are very blessed to be in. A place which is a gift from Him. A place where you truly experience a very unique type of love from God.
A place where you know you have your loved ones always there for you no matter what happened. They will be right there, ready to listen and comfort you after you are exhausted of exploring the whole Earth. A place where your mom would cook good food, your siblings would work together to clean the house, where dad would be outside washing the car. A place where all of us would finally gather after scattering around for years. A place where we could all talk whatever we want without reservations. A place where we could watch any tv channel we like, and if we don't, we are not afraid or ashamed to fight for the remote control. A place where you can crack lame jokes and still get laughters for it. A place where you are forgiven no matter how huge your mistake is. An origin of the countless memories you and your loved ones shared together. A place where the compass in you will refer to, in case you are lost, someday, and you badly needed a shelter because you could continue to wherever you are heading to.
A place where you know no dangers. A place where you know no strangers.
I see strange people. I think I lost my compass, have you seen it?
