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 welcomed back again and

Great to see you or where have you been?

A Hug can soothe a small child’s pain.

And bring a rainbow after the rain.

The Hug! 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.

Hugs are great for fathers and mothers.

Sweet for sisters, swell for brothers.

And chances are some favorite aunts.

Love them more than potted plants.

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 marrier.

No need to fret about the storm of them.

The more you give, the more there are of ‘em.

So stretch those arms without delay.

And give someone a Hug today.
