Hug me

by Nonto   Feb 3, 2006

When my world is crumbling on me,
When everything is falling apart,
Put me together,
Hug me

When the world is celebrating me,
When the world is laughing with me,
Do better than that,
Hug me.

When I'm lost in an isolated land,
With no one to call a friend,
Be closer than a friend,
Hug me.

When I'm filled with rage,
Take the courage,
Be the one to break me,
Hug me.

When fear overcomes me,
When shame shames me,
Help me come through alive.
Hug me.

Break and build me,
Encourage and congratulate me,
Accept and love me,
Hug me.
