Hugs & Ladybugs

Listen to Jacoby ...
If you're having a dreary day,
And feeling a little blue,
Think of hugs & ladybugs,
You'll feel better; it's true!

You may not feel good enough,
But trust me, yes you are,
You can have my hugs & ladybugs,
Keep on shining little star!

Ignore those pesky pesty doubts,
That whisper in your ear,
Hush them with hugs & ladybugs,
Show them you have no fear!

So keep on smiling, do not fret,
This is where you belong,
With all of the hugs & ladybugs,
You are brave and strong!

About the Writer

Jacoby Crane

Jacoby is an eccentric artist living in Derbyshire. They spend their time baking, making peculiar things, doodling doodles and writing oddities, currently they're focusing on poetry and working on a children's fantasy novel called Lumi. Jacoby's inspiration mostly comes from their unusual dreams and the weirdly wonderful things their kids quote, but their muse comes in the forms of Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell.
