A lovely word in Portugese that I just had to share...

Saudade is a Portugese and Galician word for a feeling of nostalgic longing for something or someone that one was fond of and which has been lost. It often carries a fatalist tone and a repressed knowledge that the object of longing might never really return. It was once described as "the love that remains" after someone is gone.
