"Esta é uma palavra portuguesa e tanto quanto sabemos não existe tradução em nenhuma lingua. Por isso hoje trazemos "Saudade"!"
"This is a portuguese word and as far as we know there are no other words in other languages which have a similar meaning. So today we bring you "Saudade"!
"Saudade has been described as a "vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist … a turning towards the past or towards the future". 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. It may also be translated as a deep longing or yearning for something which does not exist or is unattainable.
Saudade was once described as "the love that remains" or "the love that stays" after someone is gone. Saudade is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again. It can be described as an emptiness, like something or someone that should be there in a particular moment is missing, and the individual feels this absence. In Portuguese, ‘Tenho Saudades Tuas’, translated as ‘I have Saudades of you’ means ‘I miss you’."
