A Hug Is A Wonderful Gift To Share

A hug is a wonderful gift to share,
A way to show each other we care,
There is so much a hug is able to do,
When you feel those arms holding you.
A hug is a place to feel safe and warm,
A comfort for a sad heart that is torn;
It can hold us up when life gets us down,
And make us smile, instead of frown.
A hug can be given for no reason at all,
And given to those, both big and small.
We're never too old to feel the joy it brings,
It is one of the life's most pleasing things.
And for all of this beauty, a hug is free,
Costs nothing, yet means so much to me.
