Hug Someone You Love

Hug someone you love

Turn off all of the noise

Slowly close your eyes

And sink into their arms.

Hug someone you love

Let yourself feel something more

Then rage, uncertainty

Numbness and fear.

Hug someone you love

Because safe inside their arms

You won’t need to fear

That if you feel, you’ll fall apart.

Hug someone you love

And let your feelings flow

Perhaps they’ll find a way

To reopen your heart.

Hug someone you love

And feel the searing pain

Consciously pushed aside

To enable you to cope.

Hug someone you love

To help you find your soul

marred by merciless death

And the fear of war to come.

Hug someone you love

Perhaps it will remind you

You’re still human

And capable of love.
