He put her in the sky

He put her in the sky
She belongs up there, he thought
With the clouds because
The only constant thing about her is change
With the wind because
She can rip trees from the ground like a hurricane
With the sun because
She lights fires with her eyes

He put her in the sky so she could watch the world
So she could watch the roses she helped to bloom
So she could see him grow, too
He sent her up on a star
So she could breathe deep, up in space

He put her in the sky because
She is gentle, he has always known
With the clouds because
They empty themselves onto the earth so it may drink
With the wind because
She spreads seeds of hope across deserts of despair
With the sun because
Her love burns like cotton in a fire

He put her in the sky
His rose petal goddess
He put her in the sky
Because
He loved her
And he couldn’t hold her down
