I Try

I try not to miss you
And to see the Lisbon sun
although it’s cold this morning

I try not to let it rain inside
And to keep my eyes focused
at what is ahead of me
although my vision now is narrow

I try not to let my heart drown
in a sea of longing
And instead to swim back
to the surface
although the current underneath
is pulling me

I try not to miss you
And to feel your arms
to hear your voice,
that says,
not to miss you but to enjoy
the day, the sun and Lisbon

I try, my love, I try
