The challenge of saying goodbye to a special person, a friend is much different than a short-term "see you later". Let these goodbye poems help express your thoughts.
No matter the occasion or the need, some farewells are a lot more difficult than others.
Let these words of prose help you send the message you want to that special person. And remember the quote of J.M. Barrie, "Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting."
Farewell, my friend, may blessings be spread
As you venture forth on the road ahead.
May success greet you at each new bend
And joy and fulfillment be your lifelong friend
Goodbye is bittersweet, but change is good too,
And I can't wait to see what lies ahead for you!
So go on, fly high and follow your dreams today,
Embrace the journey, as you go away.
We Bid Adieu
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer
The time has come that we bid adieu,
A farewell to friends, both old and new.
Our paths diverge, each one to pursue,
But memories cherished, forever they'll accrue.
The laughter we shared, the tears we shed,
Through ups and downs, side by side we tread.
Though distance may grow and time may pass,
Our bond will remain strong our friendship will last.
As we part ways, our spirits ignite,
With dreams and hopes, reaching new heights.
Remember the journey, the stars shining bright,
For within us all, our friendship takes flight.
So let us say goodbye with a bittersweet smile,
Knowing that our connection will never defile.
Through life's adventures may our paths always cross
But we will always have our memories, they will never be lost.
When saying goodbye is hard to do use this blessing to express your thoughts!
An Irish Blessing
May you always have work for your hands to do
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
