When I Need to Say, "I Miss You."

Updated on August 24, 2011

Missing Someone You Love

Being part of a relationship can be a wonderful experience. However, when speaking about a long-distance relationship, it takes an extra special bond to make the relationship work.

Even so, a long-distance relationship is not all bad, even if you do go several days, weeks or months - at a stretch - without seeing each other. However, because you spend so much time away from each other, it's important for the other to know the longing is mutual.

I fully that you not only miss spouses/partners: you miss friends and extended family members, too, especially when going long stretches of time without seeing them. You miss your children when they've moved away to attend college and when they've moved out to start a family of their own. Even so, the focal point of this lens will be missing your partner because you are separated by geographical distance.

Life can be difficult sometimes because you miss your partner so much but it is the price you pay for loving another person. Even so, the rewards far outweigh the cost.

Come along and take a journey to explore simple ways you can tell your partner that you miss him/her.

You can tell your partner

you miss him

any day of the year.

It doesn't have to be a

special occasion.

An unexpected phone call or simple message left on

an answering machine

does wonders.

If Tomorrow Never Comes... - I'll really miss you.

My mind wanders freely and goes through an onslaught of emotions. I'm the type of person who can just wonder what it would feel like to be in a certain predicament and I can cry.

When you tell your partner that you miss him/her ...

I miss you
I miss you

A Simple Poem

Saying, "I miss you."

Write a poem telling him/her how much he/she means to you - how much you miss him/her and wish he/she was by your side.

Print it on special paper, frame it and send it in the mail - without saying anything about it! He/She will receive a wonderful surprise when it arrives. Furthermore, you can read the words to him/her over the phone as he/she reads your framed print.

If you are no good with coming up with your own words, send a greeting card, whether printed or electronic.

This is a poem I wrote about missing my partner. We had only been in a relationship for a couple of months - though we had been friends for several years - but we enjoyed spending time with each other. Whether I read him some of the poems I wrote, tickled him until he begged for mercy or acted like a clown to make him laugh, we certainly did - and do - enjoy each other's company.

Missing You

Miss your hugs and kisses, too.

Miss your arms, you know I do.

Whenever I see you smile

It makes my life seem so worthwhile.

In your arms I yearn to be

'cause you are my reality.

It's you for whom my spirit longed -

Why my heart doth sing a song.

I think of you all thru' the day -

Can't wait to relax so we can play.

Miss your hugs and kisses, too

Miss your arms; oh, yes, I do!

      starting a relationship off long distance is usually the hardest, but if you've been together for a while and then move apart for a while it is a little easier. Never easy, just easier.

      I have never had much success with long distance relationships. It always seemed that we drift apart due to our careers. The last time I met a girl in another part of the country, I married her before we spent too much time apart. And it has been 10 wonderful years thus far.

      Another out of neighborhood angel found this lens ... I'm living a 2-way long distance relationship. My hubby and birth family are in PA where I live half the time; my kids and grandkids and friends live in New England, where I spend the rest of my time each month. No fooling, this lens is a blessing to me!

      I must admit that if someone says I miss you or I love you to me everyday, I'd get bored with it. The thing though is that if that someone won't be there anymore, it's the first thing I'll miss! So, yes, say we should tell that special someone how much they mean to us - everyday!

      Hi, this is a beautiful lens. I love the angel. I agree that you never know when the last time you'll say I love you can be. Also have read your daughter's poetry. It's great' I think she is because when i was reading she said "MY mother is Norma Budden" I clicked it I think it was you .I am positive about the first name. Hope I am right I was a few weeks ago. ..Beautiful lens .

      Yeah, I believe too that whenever you have something to say to someone, you'll have to say it at instance. Who knows if tomorrow never comes? At least you said what you want to say to that special person. Nice lens. If you are interested, here is some info about facial exercise.

      @Krafick: Rafick, I am so sorry for your loss. When creating this lens, I didn't even think of missing someone who had passed on, or even missing someone you love but cannot be with. I certainly do wish you all the best and thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for stopping by. It must have been a bittersweet experience...

      Beautiful lens and different ways to let our loved one know that they are missed. With long-distance relationships it can be difficult being apart. I like to use video email every now and then, especially when I'm sending a message to a loved one across the miles. I use Talk Fusion and created a lens on it.
