Healing Power of the Hug
It’s wonderful what a hug can do
a hug can cheer you when you’re blue.
A hug can say, I love you so
or, I hate to see you go.
A hug is welcomed back again
and great to see you – where’ve you been?
A hug can soothe a small child’s pain
and bring a rainbow after rain.
The hug, there’s just 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.
Hugs are great for fathers and mothers.
Sweet for sisters, swell for brothers
and chances are your favorite aunts
love them more than potted plants.
Kittens crave them, puppies love them
heads of states are not above them.
A hug can break the language barrier
and make travelers so much merrier.
No need to fret about your store of ‘em
so stretch those arms without delay
and give someone a hug today!
