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.
