saudade (european portuguese: [sɐwˈðaðɨ]) is a portuguese and galician word that has no direct translation in english. it describes a deep state of nostalgic or deeply melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing will never return. a stronger form of saudade may be felt towards people and things whose whereabouts are unknown, such as a lost lover, or a family member who has gone missing.
saudade was once described as “the love that remains” after someone is gone. it is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, and well-being. it can be described as an emptiness, like someone or something that should be there in a particular moment that is missing, and the individual feels this absence."
