Absence of something that you do not have is not painful than something you have but not yours.The moment someone asks you this thing, you recollect of a thing or a person which you do not have or is not yours. But, the absence is also felt when you have something very near to you but is not quite yours. There are many people who are married but do not find love in that, at that time the real absence is felt. We feel the absence of time our loved ones cannot give. Despite being near us they are busy with their work.
