[ Also see Absent Banishment Companionship Distance Farewell Forgetfulness Home Letters Meeting Memory Parting Solitude ]

I have this while with leaden, thoughts been press'd;
  But I shall, in a more continuate time,
    Strike off this score of absence.
      - William Shakespeare, Othello

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

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

I dote on his very absence, and I wish them a fair departure.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice (Portia at I, ii)

Conspicuous by his absence.
      - Tacitus (Caius Cornelius Tacitus)

Cassius and Brutus were the more distinguished for that very circumstance that their portraits were absent.
  [Lat., Praefulgebant Cassius atque Brutus eo ipso, quod effigies eorum non videbantur.]
      - Tacitus (Caius Cornelius Tacitus), Annales
         (bk. III, ch. 76),
        from the funeral of Junia

'Tis said that absence conquers love;
  But oh! believe it not
    I've tried, alas! its power to prove,
      But thou art not forgot.
      - Frederick William Thomas,
        Absence Conquers Love

Since you have waned from us,
  Fairest of women!
    I am a darkened cage
      Songs cannot hymn in.
        My songs have followed you,
          Like birds the summer;
            Ah! bring them back to me,
              Swiftly, dear comer.
                Seraphim,
                  Her to hymn
                    Might leave their portals;
                      And at my feet learn
                        The harping of mortals!
      - Francis Thompson, A Carrier Song

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.
      - Unknown
