Today is one of those days when I need a hug, one of those hugs that make me feel I have someone to lean on. One of those long hugs when I can rest my head on a warm shoulder and close my eyes and pretend that all is well.
It wasn't that terrible, it may not even have been bad at all, I should be used to it. I should have gotten stronger, so much stronger and so much wiser...
Today I need secure and firm arms to hold me tight, a hand on my hair and a kiss on my head. Like a little child needs the comfort of a mother, the warm, unconditional and unbreakable protection of a father. Maybe I'm just tired, maybe I'm getting a cold, it could be hormones, but it feels like life.
Today I need a hug.
