Hiraeth is a Welsh word in everyday use in modern times. It is also one of a few Welsh words that is commonly used in the English language like bach and cwtch. There is no single English word that adequately translates the meaning of the word but it means a deep sense of longing, a yearning for that which has past, a sense of homesickness tinged with grief or sorrow over the lost or departed.
