Free Hugs

It's the touch that gives you comfort.
It's the touch that makes you feel.
It's something that no one else can ever steal.
It's the sweetest human contact for the body and the mind.
It's the connection where two bodies link and bind.

It's what we search for when we feel all alone,
It can be so meaningful; the emotion is deep to the bone.
It's what makes us realize that someone else is there.
It's the touch that says, "Just know I'll always care."
It can say hello; it can say goodbye.
It can leap out when you're happy or make you want to cry.
It can say "I love you" or "I'm really glad we're friends."
It can be the last spark in a story that ends.

All you need is another soul to make you feel this snug.
It's the connection in our life.
Everyone needs a hug.

Yes, a hug can really affect your day and a hug can make all of the difference in your life! I love hugs.

I had a breakdown and was not in a good space. I left my husband who by the way was a great guy but I just withdrew. After leaving him everyone left me. I am alone with no friends, family and yes just a hug would mean so much.
