Sought by All

Maybe a place,
or perhaps a space.
In a heart,
Or beside a hearth.

Games played,
Memories made,
Lessons learned,
Years turned.

Children raised,
A round of days,
History shared,
How well they fared.

Sought by all,
A place to call
Home, not found
A lonely sound.

Those who wander
Often ponder,
“What goes in
Such a thing?”

Deeper than walls
Or vintage halls,
Picture cards
Or albums marred.

Pain and grace
Tied to a place
In your mind.
Never to find,

Only to build;
What is willed
By a longing soul
To be whole
Is home

Your poem is so compact with very definite images evoked. I especially like the phrase, "years turned." Thanks for sharing.
