SAUDADE: a word that can't be translated

Saudade is a word for a sad state of intense longing for someone or something that is absent. Saudade comes from Portuguese culture, and it is often expressed in its literature and music. Like on the lyrics of Vanessa Rangel:

"Tô com saudade de você
Debaixo do meu cobertor
E te arrancar suspiros, fazer amor..."


"I miss you Under my blanket And I miss taking your breath away; make love to you"

Saudade is described as a kind of melancholy yearning.
