"Love is missing someone whenever you're apart,
but somehow feeling warm inside because you're close in heart."
"Sometimes, when one person is missing, the whole world seems depopulated. "
"Within you I lose myself...
Without you I find myself
Wanting to be lost again."
"Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair."
"What is the opposite of two? A lonely me, a lonely you."
"No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other's worth."
"Your absence has gone through me
Like thread through a needle
Everything I do is stitched with its color."
W.S. Merwin, "Separation"
"Days of absence, sad and dreary,
Clothed in sorrow's dark array, -
Days of absence, I am weary;
She I love is far away."
"What shall I do
with all the days and hours
That must be counted ere I see thy face?
How shall I charm
the interval that lowers
Between this time and
that sweet time of grace?
Frances Anne Kemble
"You left, and my heart is a ceaseless sermon of loneliness."
"I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long. If we're in each other's dreams, we can play together all night."
Bill Watterson, Calvin & Hobbes

I dropped a tear in the ocean. The day you find it is the day I will stop missing you.
