What Hugging Can Do

Dean Walley, The Messenger

It's wondrous what a hug can do.A hug can cheer you when you're blueA hug can say, "I love you so,"Or, "I hate to see you go."

A hug is "Welcome back again."And "Great to see you! Where &ls;er you been?A hug can soothe a small child's painAnd bring a rainbow after rain.

The hug, there's just no doubt about it &md;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 auntslove them more than potted plants.

Kittens crave them, puppies love them,Heads of states are not above them.A hug can break the language barrierAnd make your travel so much merrier.

No need to fret about your store of &ls;em;The more you give, the more there's more of &ls;em.So stretch those arms without delayAnd give someone a hug today!
