A hug is how you know a friend is real;
They wrap their arms around and pull you near.
And in that moment everything you feel
Is shared and there is nothing left to fear.
A hug can make the darkest day seem bright,
Or make a day already bright pure bliss.
A hug is like the dawn that ends the night,
And often its a prelude to a kiss.
Like home, a hug is comfortable and warm.
Like love, a hug is given full and free.
Like shelter from a fierce and raging storm
A hug is where the heart can safely be.
Like every mother kneels to hug her child,
A hug can make this wicked world less wild.
