Hug, anyone?


Today was an off from college. Found time to relax after ages! But too much relaxation can get boring eventually. Having found nothing better to do, I surfed the net for a while. And I came across this absolutely delightful poem that made me want to hug someone right away! I don’t know who wrote it, but it sure gave me a warm, fuzzy feeling. And I’d love to share it with you all!

It's wonderful 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 the 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 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.
The more you give the more there's of 'em.
So stretch those arms without delay
and give someone a Hug today!

I just went and bear-hugged my niece and my mom. Oh and here’s a big virtual one coming your way!
