When you hug and hold someone you love close to you, it is caring, it is love. Telling each other, this is where we belong, in each other’s arms. Comforting, protecting, feeling of security, warmth, and a sense of peace.
When hugging a child, you are giving comfort that they are wanted, loved, cared for, and protected. … same for an adult.
When in love, a hug can be pure happiness and joy. A release from all the tensions and problems in life that might be bothering you. Because at that moment, when you are hugging, you are where you belong and everything is right. Everything you wanted is in your arms…loving you….holding you…hugging you.
Kiss is such a form of expressing love that when you kiss a person you are not aware of anything around you. The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender; because this kiss already has within it that surrender.
There is the kiss of welcome and of parting, the long, lingering, loving, present one; the stolen, or the mutual one; the kiss of love, of joy, and of sorrow; the seal of promise and receipt of fulfillment. You may conquer with the sword, but you are conquered by a kiss.
A kiss is something you cannot give without taking and cannot take without giving. The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon, but its echo lasts a good deal longer. It is the passion that is in a kiss that gives to it its sweetness; it is the affection in a kiss that sanctifies it.
