Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.
~Edna St Vincent Millay
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.
All days are nights to see till I see thee,
And nights bright days when dreams do show thee to me.
~William Shakespeare, "Sonnet XLIII"
Can miles truly separate you from friends.... If you want to be with someone you love, aren't you already there?
How like a winter hath my absence been
From thee, the pleasure of the fleeting year!
What freezings have I felt, what dark days seen!
What old December's bareness everywhere!
~William Shakespeare, "Sonnet XCVII"
Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes.
~Henry David Thoreau
If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden.
Within you I lose myself...
Without you I find myself
Wanting to be lost again.
Parting is all we know of heaven and all we need to know of hell.
~Emily Dickinson, "Parting"
Gone - flitted away,
Taken the stars from the night and the sun
From the day!
Gone, and a cloud in my heart.
Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair.
