Changed For Good

I realized I hadn’t written since making the big move! Despite there being plenty to write about! Life is great! I’m happier than I’ve been in a very long time. I’m reminded, at least once a day, that I almost walked away from this. But not for one person in this whole world who had the balls enough to tell me what a PUSSY I was being. I think it takes a real friend to say something like that! I miss my beloved friend, more than words can describe. He was in my life, but for a brief time, and if for no other reason than to teach me to open my heart and mind up to the possibility of change… For good! Thank you! I will always love you for that!

For Good (from Wicked)

I’m limited
Just look at me – I’m limited
And just look at you
You can do all I couldn’t do…
So now it’s up to you
For both of us – now it’s up to you…

I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you…

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend…

Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood

Who can say if I’ve been
Changed for the better?
I do believe I have been
Changed for the better

Because I knew you…
I have been changed for good…
