@fraybashirgy,
If it were me and I was looking for a synonym or an equivalent phrase, the first place I'd look is in a thesaurus:

Try Roget's Thesaurus:

http://thesaurus.com/browse/longing+for?qsrc=2446&o=100074

covet, craving, desiring, desirous of, hankering for, wishful for, yearning for.

@fraybashirgy,
craving
mawkish
maudlin
melancholic
sentimental
wistful

Can you share a little context so we can target more accurately what you're looking for?
