Tears flow softly down her cheek 
As she says her final goodbye
Hers is not to question now 
To ask the reason why

But while she cries and waits
For the day to pass away
My aching heart reaches out
Hoping comfort will come her way

I wrap my arms around her
And hug her close to me
I whisper it will be alright
Just you wait and see

Death is only natural 
And everyone must go
But today I will hug you tight
As they lay him down below

    A lovely hug poem. There are lots of types of hugs and a sympathetic one should be very welcome at a sad time. Love, Joyce
