I Received a Hug From God Tonight

I received a hug from God tonight.

It happened to be as I was tucking my son into bed,

Wrapping my arms, I hugged him so tight.

All while giving him a kiss on the forehead.

He laid under the covers looking ever so little,

All this week I felt nothing but brittle.

My son looked up at me, a glisten in his eyes,

Next month he’ll be four,

How the time flies.

I made my way over toward the bedroom door.

I love you so much, I said to him,

I love you too mommy, he said in a squeak,

He then asked if I could come near,

I did so, and he gave me a kiss on the cheek.

Water then rolled down in the form of a tear.

It was just what I needed in that very moment,

In my heart, I wish for postponement.

A moment so sweet, I know I will cherish,

For I will love him ’til the day that I perish.

I knew then, that God had reached down,

To give me a hug, erasing my frown.
