Saudade

With something found
Still much to find
That inner calm
Some peace of mind

A wall that divides
Strangers once your own
At the end of the day
Feeling so much alone

Behind glass walls
See the world play
Emotions overwhelm
Every single day

Assuring oneself
A reason for it all
Taking deep breaths
Won't let the tears fall

Alone under stars
While the winds blow
Drying tears that
Threaten to overflow

Wrapped in silence
In solitude
Thoughts echo loudly
Old wounds renewed

Fighting within
To remain strong
Internal battles
That last too long

A need to let go
To let it all fade
A need to move on
To leave this saudade.
