We Need a Hugger/Lover

We need a hugger/lover;
we need to be smothered
by an unconditional lover;
as we recover
and we need to recover
by being smothered
by a hugger/lover;
we need a hugger/lover
who will bind up our wounds
and sing sweet lullaby tunes,
someone who kisses our tears
and chases our fears
away.
Oh, Sweet Jesus, for this we pray,
this and every single day
but until that day,
we know the caring thing to do
is simply to stay away
and save the hugs for the promised day.
Come, Sweet Jesus.
