Youre Never Too Big for a Hug

 

You’re never too big for a hug.

Some folk strut around feeling smug

but when the tears roll

and you’re losing control,

you’re never too big for a hug.

 

You’re never too old for a squeeeeeeeeeeze,

for life offers few guarantees.

So when you’re disjointed

and feel disappointed

you’re never too old for a squeeze.

 

You’re never too tough for a cuddle

if you are confused and befuddled.

When clouds gather in

and you feel in a spin,

you’re never too tough for a cuddle.

 

You’re never too cool for embraces.

You may think you know where your place is,

but if you’re left out

do not be in doubt -

you’re never too cool for embraces.

 

You’re never too big for a hug.

It’s nice to feel cosy and snug.

So turn to your neighbour

and do them a favour

and give them the gift of a HUG.
