Absence does much more than simply make the heart grow fonder, it also deepens the bonds of love and affection. If someone is absent from your life and you do not miss them then this only shows that they are not important and they provide no positive value. If you are absent from a loved on this should cause favorable thoughts and a longing to be with them. Absence can be very difficult to take but the reunion is made even sweeter by the fact that you have been apart. When you see the loved one for the first time since you parted ways your heart will be overcome with emotion and you may not be able to contain your joy.
