Shelter is a refuge, a respite from anxiety.
Shelter is a haven, a safe place.
Shelter is a house, a home, a place where you belong.
Shelter is a cove, a way to hide away.
Shelter is a retreat, an escape from the everyday.
Shelter is an escape from troubles and problems.
Shelter is protection,a womb, a cocoon, a cave.
