Happy Hour at Sade's, Carmel

The song played at Sadie’s Happy Hour,
Was the most beautiful we’d ever heard.
“Non Si Vive Cosí” ,  by Iglesias;
Yet we didn’t understand one word.

All on the cusp of middle age,
At the end of our “Working Vacations”,
Our hearts ran free for one last night,
When life needed no translations. 

"Nobody can live like that anymore".  (Translation)
The lyrics warned, but none of us knew...
Thirty years later, each of us learned
Beautiful, sad songs are usually true.
