"Saudade cannot betranslated into English. But here are some descriptions of what the term means-It is a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing foran absent something or someone that one loves. It is the recollection offeelings, experiences, places, or events that once brought excitement,pleasure, and/or well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one liveagain. It can be described as emptiness, like someone or something that shouldbe there in a particular moment is missing, and the individual feels thisabsence. It brings sad and happy feelings together, sadness for missing andhappiness for having experienced the feeling. Moreover, it often carries arepressed knowledge that the object of longing might never return."
