The Universe Made You Beautiful

The Universe has made you beautiful to me
So that I would stand up and take notice.
So that as I walked in that field of flowers
You’d be the one I saw
The one I wanted to watch sprout
The one I wanted to see bloom.
 
The Universe has made you beautiful to me
I cannot deny that anymore than I deny the breath I take.
No, I will not pluck you from the Earth
Or pin you to my clothing, 
And steal your fragrance until you die,
You are safe where your reside.
 
The Universe has made you beautiful to me
Such sweet fragrance springs life anew within me.
Reminding me that in the million flowers that surround,
There is one, one
That I can smell, that I can see
That exists beyond that field, within me.
