Saudade is a word that doesn't exist in any other language but mine: Portuguese. There is a quote which defines pretty well what saudade means:

"Saudade is our soul saying where it wants to come back."
Rubens Alves

I don't know if it makes sense in English but I think Saudade is the most beautiful word in the world.

  2. Your picture is so touching and beautiful...I spoke to my husband about "Saudade" he is fluent in Portuguese so explained to me how it is pronounced Sow-daj-ee and how it is used, you are right it is a special word. It reminds me of my Father, and the things we used to share. Thank you my friend.
