Hugs&Kisses Charity Tee by Mirjam Grupp
Let our smiles be our hugs
And our eyes kiss... until we can get physical again.
In the second week of March 2020, week one of Corona hitting Berlin, a friend and I were standing in front of each other, we had both been freezing in the beginning of a hug, no longer sure if we should or could do so. We kind of air-hugged each other and smiled. It was sunny and warm, and my cardigan was open. Later, on the bike, I thought: my smile is now my hug – and this should be on a tee.
Whenever you want to hug someone, you just open your cardigan and your arms and they’ll see.
The spring in Berlin is early and beautiful. All the trees are blooming, we have a lot of sun. I had been looking forward to this time of the year, when after the winter everyone is leaving their homes, sitting outside in cafés – friendly and open. I was also looking forward to meet and kiss a wonderful man.
Let our hugs be in our smiles
And the kisses in our eyes.
And let’s let them remain
when we can get physical again.
