“and the songbirds keep singing, like they know the score/and I love you, I love you, I love you, like never before” – Fleetwood Mac, Songbird
You were carrying groceries and
Asking about a news story from yesterday when the
Little guys stopped and made us listen. Those songbirds!
Above, perched on the broken roof gutter. Keep
This moment close, I thought. You started singing
Along, chirping away like
A tiny bird yourself. Somehow they
Knew you wanted to join. Birds, you remind me, just know
These things. You dropped the groceries and began to dance. The
Wind ruffled all of our feathers and I stopped keeping score.
love the way you love
to stop the world and dance me around with you
i love you
I LOVE YOU!
like never before
