Just a Little Hug

By Emily Matthews

 

A hug can say, “I’ll miss you,”

Or, “I’ll be thinking of you,”

It can say, “You’re someone special,”

Or, best of all, “I love you.”

It can soothe a hurt, or calm a fear,

Or cheer us when we’re blue—

It almost seems a miracle

All the things a hug can do!

 

When the sun is refusing to shine on your day and you’re finding it hard just to cope,

When you’re seeing more rain clouds than stars in the sky

and you just feel like giving up hope,

That’s the time when someone comes along with a smile and a warm hug that says,

“It’s okay— Tomorrow is coming, so don’t give up now—

Brighter moments are soon on their way!”

This Hug is for You !!!

 

~   You “are” someone special   ~

nobody minds if you exchange it.
