Out Now – Saudade
“Saudade (noun) [sɐwˈðað], [sawˈdadʒi], [sawˈðaðe]
A Portuguese and Galician word that has no direct translation in English. It describes a felt emptiness or absence–a deep emotional state of nostalgic or deeply melancholic longing for an absent something or someone. It often carries the repressed knowledge that the object of longing will never return. Also described as “the love that remains”, and is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement or pleasure. It is both a sad and happy feeling–sadness for missing and gladness for having experienced the memory.” (From .gif’s soundcloud).
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
