While I dedicate this to all of you, I'm thinking of someone in mind -- who is the sister I never had and a huge inspiration to me.   But to all of you, who are giving me the space and strength to figure out who I am and just who I want to be.   (for some reason the video doesn't want to show up on my main blog page, but if you click on "read more" you'll see the video)



















"For good" from the musical, Wicked

GLINDA
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

ELPHABA
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?
But because I knew you:

GLINDA
Because I knew you:

BOTH
I have been changed for good

ELPHABA
And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I've done you blame me for

GLINDA
But then, I guess we know
There's blame to share

BOTH
And none of it seems to matter anymore

GLINDA                       ELPHABA
Like a comet pulled        Like a ship blown
From orbit as it              Off it's mooring
Passes a sun, like           By a wind off the
A stream that meets       Sea, like a seed
A boulder, half-way       Dropped by a
Through the wood          Bird in the wood

BOTH
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
I do believe I have been changed for the better?

GLINDA
And because I knew you:

ELPHABA
Because I knew you:

BOTH
Because I knew you:
I have been changed for good.
