I want a hug and I want you to say
Hey, you know what? it's all going to be ok.
And I hope that hug is filled
With all of the love from here to the moon and back.
They say a person needs the equivalent
of ten hugs a day to be happy.
Well let me tell you
I'm only asking for one.
Because right here- right now-
I'm about to be on my own.
And I'm afraid.
