Saudade

A Poem

Saudade
The beautiful lady I called Grandma and her dog, Sassy

Saudade

Oh how I long

To feel your arms

Wrapped around me

Holding me close

Never letting go.

How I miss your voice

As you’d sing to me...

Sing me to sleep.

As we talked about everything

And you comforted me.

Saudade

Oh the memories

As I walk through the fields

Singing songs of love and loss

Seeing you wherever I go

Knowing that I am not alone.

Memories of our lives

And of our friendship and hardships

Because we were each other's family

But we are no longer together.

Saudade

I’ll long for the day

I see you again.

For more singing and laughing

I long for your smile.

Saudade

Because no English word

Can truly describe

How much I miss you.
