For Good-Installment #2

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

I met Caitlin about 12 years ago. Well, actually I haven't ever
met her. The explanation? We became penpals at the age of 11
and never lost contact. Even when we grew older and stopped
writing as frequently, we started texting and emailing instead.

Caitlin knows me better than almost any friend I know. Because
she has gotten to know me through my writings, and that is
how I get to know myself. I can express things in writing that I
could never tell my friends in everyday life. So to my bestest
invisible friend-hopefully we meet in the next year! I know we've
said that since we were 14, but now we have more access. Who knows? :)
