Hugs and Kisses Poem
Hugs and Kisses are affection to share,
To show others that you care.
Hugs and Kisses are sent your way,
From someone who cares and wishes to say,
My prayer for you is to have a good day,
And remember someone while on your way.
And don’t be too busy to spend a moment or two,
Thanking the Lord for His blessings to you.
And as you remember this Hug and Kiss,
May it remind you of your friend or family.
