A collection of missing you quotes that capture the burning desire and the heart-wrenching emptiness at the same time.

“He is in my heart, but not by my side.”

If you’ve been in a long-distance relationship, or have lost a loved one, you understand the pain of missing someone. 

The more you are attached to them, the more it hurts when they are gone. When they are not by your side, there seems to be an empty hole that is impossible to fill.

The party is no longer fun without their accompany. The house is no longer warm without their presence. 

It is a mixed feeling to think about someone that’s not there. And it hurts not to be able to hold them in our arms. But at the same time, it reminds us how important they are and how deeply we are in love. 

If you have someone in your mind but not by your side, pick one of these bittersweet missing you quotes and send to them. Or keep these quotes for yourself if it’s time to let go.
