Shared Melancholic Longing

A Portuguese photographer told me
that my eyes have the perfect
Portuguese look
as they express saudade,
this sad, melancholic longing

But then I saw your pictures
And oh man, it was like I looked in the mirror
for your eyes have the same
expression, the Portuguese look

Or is it just the melancholic look of
two lovers that miss each other,
the pain of physical separation,
visible and tangible in the eyes
Two counterparts that already longed
for each other the day they were born
Even long before they first met
