The Hug, a Poem of Regret

The hug was a surprise to me,
Your words took me off guard.
But I could not embrace you back
Your touch made me afraid for you.
I thought friends would condemn this hug.
What if their mean comments hurt you?
Such long years are between us both;
You are full of springtime and youth,
I have spent my seasons by now
And I fear none remain to share.
A gap has grown between us both.
Did you think I reject your act?
Or that I am without a heart?
Or did you start doubting my care?
Did you go then feeling a fool?
None of those thoughts are true!
For me it was above all hugs.
I have had such regrets since then-
Each day I must wonder, "What if..."
I wish I had hugged you back.
