Disclaimer: I do not own any part of Wicked.

This poem is dedicated to Ms.DefyGravity11. Without her, I would have never known about Wicked. Because I knew her, I have been changed for good.

I have finally seen Wicked! It was one of Idina Menzel's last performances (sniff). I feel terrible about her injury…WE LOVE YOU IDINA!! Okay, just had to say that…

Anyway, now that I know some more about Wicked, I can write more fanfiction! I was listening to "For Good" and talking to Ms.DefyGravity11 when I was inspired to do this poem. You could say it's Elphaba's POV. Enjoy it, and please review!

…………………

Because I knew you...

These words can lead to many phrases

Some encouraging, some full of contempt.

Because I knew you...

I think of the hurtful things that could be said after:

...my life is ruined! ...my friends are gone! ...my love is dead!

Because I knew you...

In the future these words may be used to hurt

But now, in the present, they speak only good.

Because I knew you...

Never before have these words been spoken to me

Never before have I felt the joy these words bring.

Because I knew you...

Now I have heard them for the first time

Now my best friend speaks them to me.

Because I knew you...

They are not ended hatefully

But with words I find quite amazing.

Because I knew you...

Can lead to many different words

But the words of my friend are the best of them all:

Because I knew you...

...I have been changed for good.
