Zen?

I was reading through old blog entries last night. Really old. From before I was even here on blogger. Back in my blurty days.

I found one about running into a guy that I dated briefly back in Montreal. In a lot of ways, he was the French-Canadian version of the minister. The post was about running into him many months after we’d broken things off–though we weren’t together very long.

It was a different situation, obviously, but it was good to read about him and to remember him and to remember how I felt when that ended and how it felt to see him again. It made me realise–and hammered home the point to a certain extent–that things will get better. And that amazing people can and will come into my life again.

That’s unfair, in a way, because I’m surrounded by amazing people. All of my friends are amazing people. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be my friends.

I will meet someone as amazing, if not more so, at some point. It won’t be tomorrow. It might be. But not likely.

My heart needs time to mend, that much is for sure. But it will. And it’s started to already. I have a long way to go, no doubt. But it’ll get there. And, hopefully, I’ll still have him in my life as a friend when I get there.

In any event, I’ve yet another song to post. I know that seems to be all I’ve been posting recently but it’s part of my coping process. Deal. I certainly am.

‘For Good’ from Wicked

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

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.
