changed for good.
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... because I knew you I have been changed for good.
And just to clear the air I 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!
I heard this song today and just LOVED the lyrics. Although I am far from home, I think about these words and remember all of the beautiful people who have come in and out of my life who have truly changed me for the better. And for that I am so thankful!
