How Far Can A Hug Travel

How far can a hug travel?
Can its strength endure the miles?
At the speed of light over five thousand k’s
Can you feel my smiles?

If I sit in perfect stillness
And quietly close my eyes,
Can my heart hear your heart beating,
Feel the warmth that it inspires?

If you spread your wings around me
Do you think that I could fly?
And if we lived a world apart
Could you see through my eyes?

As the world contains such beauty
Would you ever really know,
What it’s like to look into my eyes
If I didn’t tell you so?

If you never stand before me
How would you see my soul?
If our hands could not touch together
Would we feel the energy flow?

Can the source we share unite us?
Can the love we feel survive
If we never meet and gaze into
The soul’s windows in our eyes?

So if I send my blessings
Would my laughter fill your ears?
And if your heart felt sorrow,
Would my eyes cry your tears?

Would the vibrancy of living
Spread back and forth like fire?
Would you feel me wrapping round you
To comfort and inspire?

Can the love you send deliver
All the beauty in your soul
Can I know you, really know you,
From a message or a call?

But the wires of the universe
Carry the strongest waves of all
For we are but one, this energy – love -
Joins our spirits at the soul.

Artist's Description

this is a little poem I wrote in my much younger days…..

but I was inspired by a wonderful act of kindness here on rb recently, it reminded me of these words, and it made me think that while we can send the word “hug” back and forth across the waves to the people we care about, I honestly believe we can send the energy with it!

AND more importantly, the person receiving it can actually feel it!
I am one who works with energy and knows just what power it holds……So when you type those little thoughts and good wishes, MEAN them! And the vibes will travel and will endure….

THANK YOU Sophie – You are an Inspiration and a Friend.
