HUG (2)

I remember I wasn't much older than four - maybe five, at the most
the go-to-school mornings were colder - no such thing as a bus
our mother'd be searching for schoolbags and combing our hair the wrong way
As she buttered our toast and buttoned our coats, here's what my mother would say

We all need a hug in the morning and one at the end of the day
And as many as possible squeezed in between to keep life's troubles at bay
No matter, wherever you ramble, your problems be great or be small
It is my belief - for instant relief - a hug is the best cure of all


When Adam was cast from the garden and feeling that life was unfair
his temper was starting to harden when Eve said ?I've nothing to wear?
But God in his mercy looked kindly, He gave his wide shoulders a shrug
I?ll give human kind a small piece of my mind
And so he created the hug


A letter can bring consolation, a phone call can brighten the night
In the midst of great aggravation, they can put at least some wrong things to right
But when your heart feels like it's breaking, your life slipping down past the plug
And you feel like a ghost, the thing you want most
Is someone to give you a hug
