Saudade

There is a word that cannot be directly translated in English, that accounts for the deep longing of what it means to miss someone or something; a moment in time. Unrequited love or the passing of someone dear; someone you no longer see. It is maybe the saddest and most beautiful word I have heard, in a long time. This word has been brought up in two different conversations this week by two different people. I am unsure of what that means, but I know it resonates with me.

“Saudade, is a word in Portuguese and Galician that has no direct translation in English. It describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves.”
