We Must Have Been Birds

from by Petracovich



We must’ve been birds
We must’ve flown
And carried no weight
Our shoulders lifted by the air below

We must have had feathers
And woken and spoken together
And leaned in to each other
To feel the warmth that gathers under the down

And I
You’re mine
You’re mine
You’re mine

We must have made nests
We must have made sense
Things are going so well
We must have made sense
This love is floating so well
Love’s in your arms

You must have sung
I heard your song
And crafted and gathered and praised the tree
Where we would raise our young

And we
We died,
lived by
each other
