A Simple Hug
Oh Just the simple touch of a caring heart,
a simple warm hug to lift away the dark.
Forlorn days are now multiplied by lonely nights.
I Sure could use a real hug to make things right.
I know… oh how I know that in time it gets better…I know this much,
Yet there are sometimes when one needs, oh really a sincere heartfelt touch.
For one like me to go from a hundred or more sweet hugs a day to none,
has left such a empty, oh so empty place in a heart already undone.
Never in all the days of this life that by the grace of God I have lived,
Oh never have I felt so alone and abandoned to the darkness where nothing gives.
Only once time a day do I see a smile that from the east comes my way.
It comes in the early morning from where pretty butterflies play.
Thank God for little things…but Lord…I sure could have used a hug today.
