It’s wondrous what a hug can do.
A hug can cheer you when you’re blue.
A hug can say, “I love you so.”
or, “Gee, I hate to see you go.”
A hug is, “Welcome back again!”
and “Great to see you!” or
“Where’ve you been?”
A hug can soothe a small child’s pain
and bring a rainbow after rain.
There’s no doubt about it,
we scarcely could survive without it.
A hug delights and warms and charms.
It must be why God gave us arms.
Kittens crave them. Puppies love them.
Heads of State are not above them.
A hug can break the language barrier
and make the dullest day seem merrier.
