Saudade

Words by Kevin Danson

 

Saudade
 
The longing of a recent widow.
 
A girl without her boy.
 
A dog strays from its best friend,
 
seeking with hope, and certain vain.
 
From a baby’s first suckle; an object of
 
requirement and frequency.
 
A sudden aroma—sunshine
 
Enters before the moment passes
 
Yet it lingers in sight of our mind’s eye–
 
Decaying house, deserted fields
 
Reconstructed.
 
Departures, arrivals; welcome, farewell
 
Nervous touching, nervous laughter
 
a tear, a cry, some hiccups
 
Missed you. Missing you. Miss you.
 

Saudade
