Goodbye Poems to say Farewell

Dear Friend
Poet: Grinnell Willis

Dear friend, 'tis hard to say farewell,
And harder yet it is to tell,
In parting words, how strong the tie
We sever now in this good-bye.

We all shall miss thy gentle grace.
Thy willing hand and cheerful face;
No other friend thy place can fill.
Though absent we shall claim thee still;

God bless the work thou hast begun,
And guard thee in the years to come.
And when thy heart is weary, or alone.
Come back and rest in this thy home.

 Goodbye To You

Goodbye Forever
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

Goodbye are the words we often say
When people leave for work for a day
But when we say goodbye for forever
We realize we are no longer together.

Goodbyes can be so hard
Sometimes leaving us scarred
But time has a way of healing things
Life has more hello's to bring.

So while you may feel sad today
Keep moving forward it will be okay
Express your feelings and even cry
You will feel better as time goes by.

Encouraging Goodbye Poem       

Why Does Good
Poet: Kate Summers

Why does good appear
When goodbye means I disappear
What's the good in not seeing you
It just means that I will be blue.

I think goodbye should drop the good
Just "bye" would be better understood
So from now on the good is gone
And only "bye" will be my song.

 There Is No Goodbye

Leaving Is Sad
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

What we had was something unique
Similar to a special antique.
I wish I didn't have to leave
Life without you is hard to conceive.

Life without you won't be the same
But I do hearby proclaim
I wish you luck and much happiness
But leaving is sad, regardless.

Leaving Me

To-morrow I'm Away

Poet: Max Ehrmann

Come here and take my hand
And press my lips,
Just for today —
To-morrow I'm away;
With pulsing heart
And quickened feet
I'll tread another street;
And in the toils
Of duty's net
I may sometimes forget
You for awhile,
And this sweet day
In life's all stormy way;
And oft I'll know
The want of heart
Again life's work to start,
So press my lips
Just for today —
To-morrow I'm away.

Farewell, so long

Like goodbye
I say with a sigh!

Saying Goodbye
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

Saying goodbye is never easy
Actually it makes me queasy
So let's just say see ya later
Keep in touch by email or notepaper.

Goodbyes seem like the end
But we will always be friends
We may be separated by miles
Just say keep in touch and smile!

More Inspirational Poems  to Encourage & Motivate

Many words express goodbye: farewell, cheerio, ta-ta, see you, so long, au revoir. Goodbyes are seen as a sad time, however, the memories that we have from time spent together will always be with us.

And at other times, goodbyes may not feel like it, but truly they are the best thing that could have happened to us. It allows us to move on, to find new relationships.

And technology today allows us to stay in touch so perhaps it is not a permanent goodbye, but a talk later goodbye. Technology not only allows us to talk but also to see the person. So while you may say goodbye, you can always keep in touch.
