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 "welcome 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 for your 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 your travels so much merrier.

No need to fret about your store of 'em;
So stretch those arms without delay,
And give someone a hug today!!!!!
