Carry me in Song
A Poem — Influenced on the singer-songwriters Amaral
Carry me with you in song,
to a country, I only know thanks to your voice,
and a recollection of love,
that could have been mine, but it is yours,
and nevertheless, you share.
In your guitar, I feel the waves
telling me about the blue, the mist and the coast.
Your voice makes me feel more
than what my presence will ever make me note
if I ever landed at your shore.
How can I thank you
for making me feel, for the saline scent,
as transpires through your song,
perpetuity of past, even when it’s gone,
and now I travel with your song.
I discovered Amaral thanks to one of my favorite singer-songwriters, Joaquin Sabina. I have always believed that a good friend is one who introduces you to another great friend.
Granted is I don’t personally know them. But you may agree with me in the connection we sometimes share with artists when they touch our souls.
Amaral has enchanted me with her voice. Her poesy transports me to places in the intersection of geography and the soul.
