I hope you know how much I love you. I find you endlessly fascinating. Always and forever. And yes, for your mind. But also your body, your spirit, your soul, your everything. You are a whole person who is worthy of love and passion.

Your comment of it's not easy being green reminds me of one of my favorite books. Wicked. (Sorry, not a Muppet fan for a very specific reason) If you're not familiar, it's the story of Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) from her point of view. It is phenomenal.

The lyrics of For Good come to mind. The show is, well it's indescribable. But the books are even more so.

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 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

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 rewritten mine

By being my friend

Like a ship blown from its mooring

By a wind off the sea

Like a seed dropped by a sky bird

In a distant wood

Who can say if I've been changed for the better

But because I knew you
