Saudade is a Portuguese word that can be translated as “longing, yearning”, which describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic longing for something or someone that one loves and which is apart. It often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing might never return.

Saudade was once described as “the love that remains” or “the love that stays” after someone is gone

  21. comeseethroughme said: It’s so nice to see this word here. I speak portuguese and I find it so hard to express myself in english when it comes to feeling saudade. It’s such a deep feeling… Too sad there’s no word for it in eglish :/ One should definitely be made up.
