During a recent Carpool Karaoke, James Corden rode with Paul McCartney. It was my favorite carpool yet.
First, I grew up listening to their music. If it wasn’t The Beatles, it was The Who. If it was Elton John, it was America. Seriously, I dragged a couple of my friends to the Ostrich Festival in the Phoenix area and we rocked out to America. Well, I rocked out to America. So, The Beatles are important to me.
I’ve always liked Let It Be but never knew the story behind it until I watched this episode. Paul was having a hard time, there was a lot of uncertainty in his life. And drugs. He went to sleep one hard night and his mother (who passed away when he was 14) came to him in a dream. She assured him that everything was going to be okay soon and to let it be.
Tears were streaming down my face as I heard this. I’ve had experiences where I’ve felt Rory letting me know that she’s okay. She’s happy. She’s not alone.
But here’s the thing.
I want her here.
I want to hug her.
I want to love her.
I want to hear her fake laugh.
I want to see her smile.
I want to hear her say, “Tickle me” or “Cuddles”.
I want her to wake me up and crawl into my bed.
I want to see her wink.
I want to see her skip across the room.
“For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer
Let it be”
I’m still in the night, but I have her assuring me. There will be answer. Let it be.
