A hug is a handshake that comes from the heart,
A welcome embrace after time spent apart.
A sweet ―Good to see you‖ or loving ―Godspeed‖ ,
Or perhaps just to comfort a friend who’s in need.
For hugs have a meaning no handshake can hold:
To those who you love best they are worth more than gold.
A warm , worthless gesture each human can share,
That speaks your affection, and shows how you care.
