I had a friend pass away who was a huge fan of every type of music. She was someone that helped to create my career, get me to start blogging and someone who was always there for me when I needed her. When I woke up this morning and saw our other friends saying they’ll miss her I was shocked. I don’t know if its harder to find out from a friend on the phone or to see a ton of messages on Facebook, but it is definitely hard to hear that someone who was an amazing person who actually didn’t have a bad thing about her, except for being extremely stubborn, dies. When I first saw on Facebook that she had died, I didn’t want to see that or think about it yet. I wasn’t ready to think about the fact that she had died. Instead I took a shower, fed my cat and made something to eat. When I was ready to look at Facebook again I went back to my computer and turned it on.
It’s amazing to see how many people knew someone and how many loved that person. It also makes it a little more sad because you see how many people are upset by that person passing away. When I was reading through all of our other friends posts I started to think of a song and For Good from Wicked came into my head. For Good from Wicked is the song where Galinda and Elphaba are saying goodbye to each other.
The two friends are standing in Fyero’s castle waiting for Dorothy and her friends to come kill Elphaba. Neither of them feel like they did everything they could have for each other and both of them know that it is the last time they will see each other. For Good from Wicked is the song where the two witches finally say goodbye to each other and let the other one know that they loved each other. They both apologized for not being the best friend to each other but they also both knew that they loved each other and would have done anything for the other one. They both had the same goals, they just wanted to achieve them differently so they went their own ways. For Good is one of the sadder songs in Wicked and one that makes almost everyone in the audience cry. It is an amazing song with incredible lyrics and music and it is the song that I first thought of when I found out that my friend had died.
