A Little Hug - Poem by David Harris

On days when the world
seems to be getting on top of you,
stop and look around,
give someone a little hug
and chase the world away.
You would be surprised
what a little hug can do.
It can lift the weight
off your shoulders
and make you feel good to.
So as you read this little poem,
give someone a little hug.
They might need it
just as much as you.

    Aww sweet. I just noticed randomly that there is a small spelling error in the 5th line from the bottom. It says to instead of too... anyway great poem very moving! ☺️☺️ (Report) Reply

    Hugs are special,
    hugs are free,
    I think I'll go and hug a tree.

    Thanks David for this reminder. A great uplifting read. And a big hug to the author too. love, Allie xxxx

    I have a feature article about giving a hug. It will make a big big diffence if somebody will give you a hug. It is an expression of acceptance and loving. I do need a hug each day to make my day..this is a very touching piece! Receive my hug, David! thank you! You are a blessing to me! (Report) Reply

    So Beautiful....Funny though that I wasn't expecting a demand to action, which I followed huging my monitor, he replied back flashing to me turning on and off,
    as I touched its green On/Off bottom on the way to its reach. LOL

    Great Poem! Thank you!
