A simple hug


There’s something in a simple hug that always warms the heart.

It welcomes us back home and makes it easier to part.

A hug’s a way to share the joy and sad times we go through,

or just a way for friends to say hey I like you ‘cause you’re you.

Hugs are meant for anyone for whom we really care,

from grandma to your neighbor, or a cuddly teddy bear.

A hug is an amazing thing, it’s just the perfect way

to show the love we’re feeling but can’t find the words to say.

It’s funny how a little hug makes everyone feel good.

In every place and language, it’s always understood.

Hugs don’t need new equipment, special batteries or parts.

Just open up your arms and open up your hearts.
