Saudade

I will never know

fully understand

what bound me to you

kept me coming back

travelling miles

hitchhiking

riding clapped out bikes

just to come see your face

each visit

months apart

to have to leave

go away in the night

back to my working life

maybe the innocence of our youth

just us

two young people

trying to find a way through

you were like a sister

wanting the best for me

& all I wanted

was to be there with you

until the time I returned

you

your family were gone

& my people

did not understand

to keep your letters

all of them lost in carelessness

& now

all I can hope is for fate

to send you back around

again
