Poem: When We Hug

When We Hug

When we hug, 
something profound happens -
 as our arms embrace,  
we create a perfect circle 
of emotion, health and harmony.
 Within that circle, 
our hearts join to the left and right,
  and pump one continuous beating rhythm,
 our lungs share the same oxygen
 from the space surrounding us, 
we breathe in, we breathe out,
we beat once, we beat twice,
we sigh and break free,
knowing the perfect circle
will be there another day
to replenish our sagging spirits.
