SAUDADE

Sitting by the edge of the pavement I looked above

Huge sky filled with colours bright

In all its shades of black and white

Still something was missing in that delight

It was something I wish I could see

Something I wish I could feel on my skin

I sat there with my heart open

As I felt the feeling of saudade

 

The colors started to fade and my eyes grew bright

My heartbeat raced like a rising tide

I closed my eyes as memories flashed by

Diminishing breaths of happiness came out in a sigh

 

I woke up somewhere that was not familiar

With faces of people I knew

Looking at me they asked if I was okay

I wanted to tell but I could not say

 

I kept on hearing voices as my eyes closed down

Once again I was surrounded with her memories around

Happiness grew as I saw her at heaven’s gate

It was the last time I felt the feeling of saudade
