Sometimes there aren’t easy solutions to complex medical problems. Often, a hug can help. It’s amazing how much pain and anxiety you can relieve with a simple hug. Hugs are also like boomerangs – when you give one, you get one. And who couldn’t use a hug?

 

I wrote this poem for the 30 Day Hug Challenge www.30DayHugChallenge.com. I hope it helps you.

The Language of Hugs by Michelle Nichols

 

A HUG can say Hello,

 

A HUG can say Goodbye,

 

A HUG can say Good luck,

 

A HUG can say Good try!

 

A HUG can say I love you,

 

A HUG can say Hang in there!

 

A HUG can say I’m sorry,

 

A HUG can say I care.

 

A HUG can say so many things,

 

And some that don’t have words.

 

Sometimes a hug’s the only way

 

A heart in need is heard.
