"I've heard it said that people come into our lives
For a reason,
Bringing something we must learn,
And we are led
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 from what I've 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 comet pulled from orbit
As it passes the 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!"
