Hugs are Important


Hugs are Important

There's something in a simple hug,
That always warms the heart.
It welcomes back home,
And makes it easier to part.

A hug is a way to share the joy
And sad times we go through,
Or just a way for friends to say
They like you 'cause you're you.

Hugs are meant for anyone
For whom we really care,
From your grandma to your neighbor,
Or a cuddly teddy bear.

A hug is an amazing thing--
Its just the perfect way
To show the love we're feeling
But can't find the words to say.

It's how a little hug
Makes everyone feel good;
In every place and language,
It's always understood.

And hugs don't need new equipment,
Special batteries or parts-
Just open your arms
And open your hearts.
