Sometimes You Need a Hug

Human Touch

There is something about

A hug on depressing days.

That mimics the warmth,

And comfort of the sun’s rays.

From friends or lovers,

A hug is human touch.

That brings us comfort.

When the world feels like too much.

Tender, soothing, raw

Touch gives us power to feel.

Ignored emotions,

We told ourselves would not heal.

A soft reminder

We are made of flesh and bone.

We all can use hugs,

No matter how much we have grown.


Thanks for reading! If you see someone you love, give them a hug today. It might make their day better :)
