Meaning of Ribbon in the Sky

Recommended Posts

I have always thought it was about finding true love after going through heartbreak. A ribbon in the sky could be a rainbow, and you can't see the beauty of a rainbow without going through the rain. Oh, Stevie, how I love you!

RIBBON IN THE SKY

Stevie Wonder

Oh so long for this night I prayed

That a star would guide you my way

To share with me this special day

Where a ribbon's in the sky for our love

If allowed may I touch your hand

And if pleased may I once again

So that you too will understand

There's a ribbon in the sky for our love

Do...Do...

Do Do Do Do Do...

HMM HMM...

This is not a coincidence

And far more than a lucky chance

But what is that was always meant

Is our ribbon in the sky for our love, love

We can't lose with God on our side

We'll find strength in each tear we cry

From now on it will be you and I

And our ribbon in the sky

Ribbon in the sky

A ribbon in the sky for our love

I think that the lyrics speak to the celebration of the love shared by people divinely united by fate and strengthened by the painful challenges they share.  Their love is graced with the decoration of a ribbon in the sky.
