every day is such a goddamn rollercoaster. but we do what we can.


Can I come down and help?
I’m way over here but I can see you struggling honey
Can I come down and help? It sure looks heavy
Can I come down and give you a hand?
I see that you’re straining and
I don’t want you to drop it
Can I come down and give you my hand?

What can I do to help?
You’re way up there but I can see you waving to me
What can I do to help? It must be heavy
How can I make the day better for you?
I’ll gather materials
Anything you need you got it
What can I do to give you a hand?

Can you come hold my hand?
You’re way over there but you can see me struggling honey,
Carrying something heavy. Can you help?
Can you come hold me when I need a friend?
We’ll handle it carefully
Now is the worst time to drop it
Can you come down and give me your hand?

I’m always here to help
To listen or give some warmth when you need it honey
We could all use some help- it sure gets heavy
When you need somebody who understands
I’m way over here but
I will cross the distance to you
Can I come down and give you my hand?
