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. ~Kay Knudsen
Sometimes, when one person is missing, the whole world seems depopulated. ~Lamartine
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? ~Richard Bach
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. ~Claudia Ghandi
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. ~William Cowper
What is the opposite of two? A lonely me, a lonely you. ~Richard Wilbur
No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other's worth. ~Robert Southey
Your absence has gone through me
Like thread through a needle
Everything I do is stitched with its color.
~W.S. Merwin, "Separation"
Thou art gone from my gaze like a beautiful dream.
And I seek thee in vain by the meadow and stream.
Love reckons hours for months, and days for years; and every little absence is an age. ~John Dryden
Every parting is a form of death, as every reunion is a type of heaven. ~Tryon Edwards
When I go away from you
The world beats dead
Like a slackened drum....
~Amy Lowell, "The Taxi"

We ought to be together, you and I.
~Henry Alford, "You and I" (Thanks, Jenn)
As contraries are known by contraries, so is the delight of presence best known by the torments of absence. ~Alcibiades
Oft in the tranquil hour of night,
When stars illume the sky,
I gaze upon each orb of light,
And wish that thou wert by.
Days of absence, sad and dreary,
Clothed in sorrow's dark array, -
Days of absence, I am weary;
She I love is far away.
The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected. ~Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
