Absence can be felt in various forms between two partners, spouses, friends and students and so on. The magnitude of the absence felt, depends upon the love or value we hold for that particular person. Absence also refers to material things like absence of peace or absence of love. In fact, to quote Ronald Reagan, absence of conflict is not peace but the ability to handle it by peaceful means.
