If kisses were the water
I would give you the sea,
If hugs were the leaves
I would give you a tree,
If love was time,
I would give you eternity.

(Dean Walley)

It's wondrous 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 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.

No need to fret about your store of 'em;
The more you give, the more there's more of em!
So stretch those arms out without delay,


...are non-fattening
...don't cause cavities
...contain no preservatives or artificial ingredients
...are cholesterol-free and naturally sweet
...are a completely renewable resource
...don't require batteries, tune-ups, or x-rays
...are non-taxable, fully returnable and energy efficient
...are safe in all kinds of weather
...are especially good for cold, rainy days
...are exceptionally effective in treating the Monday Blues

Never wait until tomorrow to hug someone you could hug today,
because when you give one, you get one right back your way!

A Hug - the Universal Rx

No moving parts, no batteries.
No monthly payments and no fees;
Inflation proof, non-taxable,
In fact, it's quite relaxable;

It can't be stolen, won't pollute,
One size fits all, do not dilute.
It uses little energy,
But yields results enormously.

Relieves your tension and your stress,
Invigorates your happiness;
Combats depression, makes you beam,
And elevates your self-esteem!

Your circulation it corrects
Without unpleasant side effects,
It is, I think, the perfect drug:
May I prescribe, my friend,...the hug!

(and, of course, it's fully returnable!)

There's Something in a Hug

(Maureen Hawkins)

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

A hug's 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--
It's just the perfect way
To show the love we're feeling
But can't find the words to say.

It's funny 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 up your arms
And open up your hearts.

Hug O' War

(Shel Silverstein)

I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
When everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
When everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.

Let's Hug

There's a hug to say I love you
And a hug to say goodbye
There's a hug to say how are you
And a hug to say we tried

There's a hug to bond a friendship
And a hug when the day is through
But the hug I love in all the world
Is the hug I get from you.
