101 Missing You Quotes – I Miss You Quotes for Him, Her


There’s that old saying, “out of sight, out of mind.” But sometimes, that is just the furthest thing from the truth, and you just can’t help but long to be with the one from whom you are apart. Maybe it’s your best friend you are missing, who has moved far away. Perhaps it is your beloved grandparent, whom you haven’t seen in months due to the pandemic. It could be your soulmate that your heart is aching for… or the love of your life, the one that got away. While the feelings you have for each of those special people are a different kind of love, they each leave a hole in your heart when they are gone.
