Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair.
In the hope to meet
Shortly again, and make our absence sweet.
Absence diminishes mediocre passions and increases great ones, as the wind extinguishes candles and fans fires.
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.
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?
Your absence has gone through me
Love reckons hours for months, and days for years; and every little absence is an age.
Thou art gone from my gaze like a beautiful dream,
And I seek thee in vain by the meadow and stream.
Separation Your absence has gone through me Like thread through a needle. Everything I do is stitched with its color.
Sometimes I need what only you can provide: your absence.
Where'er I roam, whatever realms to see,
My heart untravelled, fondly turns to thee;
Still to my brother turns, with ceaseless pain,
And drags at each remove a lengthening chain.
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.
All days are nights to see till I see thee, And nights bright days when dreams do show thee me.
As contraries are known by contraries, so is the delight of presence best known by the torments of absence.
There is one pain, I often feel, which you will never know. It's caused by the absence of you.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
Is not absence death to those who love?
i felt her absence. it was like waking up one day with no teeth in your mouth. you wouldn't need to run to the mirror to know they were gone
