Miracles Do Happen

[Paul Edgecomb]: What do you want, John Coffey? 
[John Coffey]: Just to help. 
[Paul Edgecomb]: What do you want me to do John? 
You want me to let you run out of here, see how far you can get? 
[John Coffey]: Why would you do such a foolish thing? 
[Paul Edgecomb]: On the day of my judgment, when I stand before God, and He asks me why did I kill one of his true miracles, what am I gonna say? 
That it was my job? My job?
[John Coffey]: You tell God the Father it was a kindness you done. 
I know you hurtin' and worryin', I can feel it on you, but you oughta quit on it now. 
Because I want it over and done. I do. 
I'm tired, boss. 
Tired of bein' on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain. 
Tired of not ever having me a buddy to be with, 
or tell me where we's coming from or going to, or why. 
Mostly I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. 
I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world everyday. 
There's too much of it. 
It's like pieces of glass in my head all the time. 
Can you understand? 
[Paul Edgecomb]: Yes, John. I think I can. 

People hurt the ones they love. That's how it is all around the world. 
[John Coffey]

Do you leave a light on after bedtime? 
Because I get a little scared in the dark sometimes. 
If it's a strange place.
[John Coffey]

The man is mean, careless, and stupid. 
Bad combination in a place like this. 
[Paul Edgecomb]

I just can't see God putting a gift like that in the hands of a man who would kill a child. 
[Paul Edgecomb]

We each owe a death - there are no exceptions - 
but, oh God, sometimes the Green Mile seems so long. 
[Old Paul Edgecomb]

I dreamed of you. 
I dreamed you were wandering in the dark, and so was I. 
We found each other. We found each other in the dark. 
[Melinda Moores]
