Saudade (NaPoWriMo #16)

Saudade (NaPoWriMo #17)
A melancholy cloud, a desire so loud!
          Let me go back to where I felt alive!
Let me gaze upon the landscapes of Home
        For my heart Longs evermore
               My words fail to Capture
     The depths of how I need you~
          Central America, East Africa,
               Southeast Asia, China and India
     Places I have traversed
               People’s silhouettes within my mind!
     Saudade for you! For me!
           A time of what was, what will be,
                    The darkness grips me
          I need to touch your shores!
               Oh my love! Oh my heart!
       Left in every little crevice
                    Of the world I’ve seen
     And the hearts of those I’ve met.
          Saudade! Saudade!!
               Constant desire of what does not
     And may not ever Exist~
          Oh my Child, I know thy heart,
               But come back to me,
                    Come back to the Present
          So, we may make new memories~
               New Saudades Every Day.

About Cleaver of God

A wordsmith rhymes with the times to share his heart, After a trip around the world, now the start To look ahead and write the lines That will begin to affect change all around, So hear the sound and see the pines Within the realm we found. My name is A.J. Wagoner and I love poetry; however, I also love this world and want to see the darkness turned to light, so my poetry rides the wings of eagles to bring hope to the hopeless, a voice to the voiceless, and a light to the darkness.
