Lyrics
One Last Hug
On the day you started school, I knew I'd miss my little son.
My life would never be the same, it's true.
Though I knew that growing up is good for everyone,
I yearned to hold you close to me and say these words to you,

"One last hug before you go
So that I can let you know
How very much I love you so;
One last hug.
Let me tell you, 'I love you,'
Hear the words, 'I love you, too,'
And before our time is through,
Just one last hug." 

You grew up onto a man——and such a handsome man you were.
The time had come for you to move away.
Though your independence had a healthy, sweet allure,
I longed to wrap you tightly in my arms once more and say,

"One last hug before you go
So that I can let you know
How very much I love you so;
One last hug.
Let me tell you, 'I love you,'
Hear the words, 'I love you, too,'
And before our time is through,
Just one last hug." 

Well, I wish that I could tell you how much you mean to me.
I long to see your face now grinning happily.

The good Lord has called you home to Him so suddenly, my son.
It breaks my heart that you have gone away.
Though I know that Father's plan is best for everyone,
I yearn to put my arms around you one last time and say,

"One last hug before you go
So that I can let you know
How very much I love you so;
One last hug.
Let me tell you, 'I love you,'
Hear the words, 'I love you, too,'
And before our time is through,
Just one last hug.
Before our time is through,
Just one last hug."
