There’s this word. Nothing like it exists in the English language. It’s Portuguese. Saudade. Do you know that one? It’s more…there’s no perfect definition. It’s more of an expression of feeling—of terrible sadness. It’s the feeling you get when you realize something you once lost is lost forever, and you can never get it back. The lives you had before—that we all had—we can never get them back. But there’s a beginning in an end, you know? It’s true that you can’t reclaim what you had, but you can lock it up behind you. Start fresh.
