I Have Not Ever Owned Her

I have not ever owned her
Controlled her
Nor wanted to

I see her here
Strange and bright
Strong and lovely

She is a universe unto herself

She has never tried
Or even wanted
To own or control me

And yet

She makes herself
A gift to me

She gives
Both of herself
And her actual self

And I

I could not be more grateful
