Saying Goodbye Poem

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."

  1. Saying Goodbye
    Poet:  Catherine Pulsifer, © 2019

    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.

    Saying goodbye is a phrase that is old
    Unlike hello, which at times is bold.

    Saying goodbye can be a new beginning
    Our memories will always be a blessing.

    Saying goodbye can be so sweet
    Because we know again we will meet.

    Saying goodbye is not the end
    Because we will always be friends!

  3. As You Go Away
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    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.

  4. 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.

  6. Saying Goodbye Can Be Tough
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Saying goodbye can be tough,
    Our hearts may feel a little rough.
    But fear not my friend, have no fear,
    For we'll meet again, maybe next year.

    We'll laugh and talk as old friends do,
    And remember the moments we shared anew.
    So farewell, for now, it's not goodbye,
    I will miss you that's not a lie!

  8. 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.

  10. Hard To Say
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, © 2021

    Goodbyes are hard to say
    We do not long for that day
    But if we have to part
    You will always be in my heart.

    So on this day, I will hug you tight
    And wish you a future that is bright
    We may be going our separate ways
    But we shall see each other again someday!

  12. A Different Word
      Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, © 2021

    This world is filled with things that are right
    Things that make you feel cheery and bright
    And then there is also the wrong
    Things that just don't belong.

    When you think of right and wrong
    The right helps you get a long
    But often time the wrong will bring
    Nothing that will make you sing.

    And when I think of goodbye
    I think of wrong, I can't deny
    Goodbye seems final and so sad
    Saying it doesn't make me glad.

    But there are times in life when we must say
    Goodbye, I will miss you in every way.
    No matter why the goodbye must be said
    It is something I do dread.

    Perhaps we could use a different word
    One which would not feel so awkward.
    Words like "see ya", or, "so long to you"
    Wishes like be happy in all you do.

    Or "stay in touch, or, "we will see you soon"
    Perhaps we will meet some afternoon.
    Or "cheerio" has a much happier sound
    It is easier to say without a frown.

    Or, what about "Godspeed to you"
    May He keep you safe in all you do,
    Whatever expression you choose to use
    Don't let saying goodbye make you blue.

  14. No Regrets
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Goodbye, farewell, so long, for today,
    But we will meet again my friend.
    It may be a holiday, or it may be when we're gray
    But one thing is for sure this is not the end.

    Together we have been thru so much
    Memories of happy and of sad
    We must promise to stay in touch
    Doing this will make us both glad!

    Life will roll along for sure
    But our friendship I'll never forget
    Together we have endured
    Good times, bad times, but no regrets!
