in limbo!!

Right now, I'm listening to the Wicked soundtrack. It makes me happy because I haven't listened to it in quite some time. It's got some beautiful songs...including one about how people touch your lives and how you will never be the same after being friends with someone. I believe that no matter how long or short you know someone, they will always be in your hearts, despite how you end a relationship or friendship. So, for your enjoyment, the lyrics to "For Good" from Broadway's hottest new musical, Wicked.

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?
But because I knew you:
have been changed for good
And just to clear the airI ask forgiveness
For the things I've done you blame me for
But then, I guess we know
There's blame to share
And none of it seems to matter anymore
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
I do believe I have been changed for the better?
And because I knew you
Because I knew you
Because I knew you:I have been changed for good.

Limbo can sometimes be awful, but I think that right now, my limbo is looking up.
