Saudade: longing to have something/someone that is distant. Something or someone that you have love and lost.
This word is of Brazilian and Portuguese origin. It refers to the feeling of being incomplete or lonely.
To some of us, this word may represent a long-lost relationship. To some, it may be a beloved possession. No matter who or what you dedicate this word to, the feeling is sort of unexplainable. This word would be one of the untranslatable words that can only be understood if one understands the feeling behind it. Often times, untranslatable words are the most beautiful. Suddenly, a feeling that you thought couldn't be explained, was put into words! Amazing, huh?
