On being needed

And when somebody knows you well
Well, there’s no comfort like that
And when somebody needs you
Well, there’s no drug like that


I have always loved this song, and now that I am a mother, I find a whole new level of truth in those those two lines: “When somebody needs you/Well, there’s no drug like that.”

There is something inexplicable about having a baby who needs you. It is a high you can’t begin to understand until you live it.

So what do you think?
