Dear Granma,

I learned to hug from you

and now hug people

so well they remember

my hugs with me.

I am the one

who gives real hugs,

almost theraputic,

in their warmth embrace.

If that is all I’m known for

I will have earned a place

in countless hearts

and enriched lives

all because your life

you hugged me.

Thank you,

I love and miss you,

little boy, Duane.

  1. Such a beautiful expression of the power of the hug. Very inspirational and so simply written that I can feel the hug.
