Goodbye Poems to say Farewell


Saying Goodbye Poem
So difficult it is saying goodbye
At times it can make us cry.

Saying goodbye is never easy
At times it makes us feel so queasy.

Saying goodbye rather than "so long"
Can give us the feeling that this is wrong.

Saying goodbye with a tear in my eye
When I say it a lot and it makes me sigh...

This is when I bolt.

To someone as sweet as you?

I will miss our laughs and cries.

Even your unhelpful advise...

There Is No Goodbye

There is no goodbye, only hello again,
There may just be a time in between.
I cherish our time my friend,
I will miss you, that I mean!

I would prefer not to say,
Words that have such an ending.
For our time together
Never required any mending...

Retirement is a time to say
Good luck in every way

Remember Our Love

The next time we will meet,
May be many moons away,
But don't let that,
Sever our love.

Together we are strong,
And away we can be too,
But it takes both of us,
To tighten the rope....

An Unwanted Goodbye

My time with you has meant so much,
I only wish it didn't have to end.
I realize not everything stays the same,
I just don't want any changes to impend.

But like most things,
What goes up must come down.
I feel that together with our love and commitment,
We can find the common ground...

Graduation Poems

Graduation is finally here
Our life journey is not to be feared
I will not say goodbye to you
But so long, I wish you success in all you do.

And this is okay,
As life changes a lot.
It's good to be flexible,
And don't have a blind spot.

Leaving Me

I need you now,
Not then or there.
How can you be,
Leaving me.

For this I've felt,
And never liked,
The thought of you,
Not being there...

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.

Letting Go Poems



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.
