A Hug

A hug is a gentle touch—
A light, sweet caress—
A tight squeeze.
A hug is touching lightly—
A fond embrace—
Or being held very close.
A hug is waves of love,
Feeding a starving soul.
A hug says, 'I understand..
You needn't say anymore...
' A hug warms the coldest,
Bleakest night.
A hug isn't given just once—
And then forgotten.
Once a hug is given
It is eternally etched in
The mind and in the memory,
And may be relived again and again-
In private thoughts,
In memory,
In moments of sadness—
Of loneliness—
of deep despair!
A hug is a golden touch—
A loving memory-Saying,
'I love you! '
