How Can I Give You A Hug?

 Wake me up at twelve o'clock 

I know you have reason to cry 

But it left me in a shock 

I hardly see this side of you 

I thought it was under lock 

Suppose it was all a ruse 

 Instantly I fully awoke 

 Hoping it wasn’t what I feared 

I listened to what you spoke 

My heart grew very heavy 

 As on your tears you did choke 

How could I help you my friend 

When we are so far apart? 

What could I do that would help? 

It was a great burden on my heart 

 How could I give you comfort 

 Over a late night phone call 

How could I give you a hug 

 When we have to be six feet apart
