What are some good poems (or songs) about a beloved person traveling very far away (from the speaker of the poem/song)?

I'm trying to find appropriate things to read or listen to when I'm feeling all soppy about my boyfriend being in Syria for the next few months.
The only ones I've been able to think of are the words to Alasdair Roberts's rendition of the traditional song Lord Gregory
and a song my mom used to sing
, which is apparently taken from Tennyson. But it would be nice to find some others (and I'm sure there are many better ones out there!)
