“Let me know how I can help” comes from so many places in tragedy. What a blessing. Yet, I had no idea what I needed for help. We didn’t even accept a meal train because I was so frozen. The help I actually needed—to save my child—wasn’t a possibility. So I would repeat this song in my head.
Help! I need somebody
Help! Not just anybody
Help! You know I need someone
When I was younger
so much younger than today
I never needed anybody’s help in any way
But now these days are gone
and I’m not so self assured
Now I find I’ve changed my mind, I’ve opened up the doors
Help me if you can, I’m feeling down
And I do appreciate you being ’round
Help me get my feet back on the ground
Won’t you please, please help me?
And now my life has changed
in oh so many ways
My independence seems to vanish in the haze
But ev’ry now and then I feel so insecure
I know that I just need you like I’ve never done before
THE BEATLES always pull me through.
