HUG-A-HERO DOLLS

By George Higgins, Army

Writing Type: Poem

Little boys and girls love hugs
From their mommies and daddies,
But now they must have a Hug-a-Hero doll.
While their mommies and daddies
Are overseas on their country's call,
These children must hug a look-a-like
Hug-a-Hero doll.
The dolls show photos of their parents
In military uniform,
For parents know missed hugs
Can make their children unhappy.
Some get sick and cry in their beds
For their parents, they shake and quiver.
And for these children, their parents
Are the ones we can't deliver.
So to take their place,
The children have a Hug-a-Hero doll
'Til their parents return
From their country's call.
