Saudade II

I hear a name called

sounds so like yours

& I twist & turn inside

uncomfortable in my flesh

which lay with you for a while

& If I could have you back

I would not want the pain

living with you brings

so if I sing soft in the night

look towards the setting horizon

towards your lands over there

think of me my lovely

remember that I once cared

to have you beside me

but now must suffer the love

of another

while you walk free every day

to the arms of your husband

a different lover
