    Hello everyone,

    Just wondering if someone could help me out. I normally do a lot of writing myself, not that great at poetry though. I want to find something original to write a goodbye note to a friend of mine who left without saying goodbye. For me goodbye's give me a sense of closure and I really want so say goodbye in a nice way but not cheesy, it wasn't a loving relationship, just friendship.
    Anyone know of any good sites where I could find something? I would write my own but I just break down every time I write a few words.
  2. Why not Google goodbye poems

    Sure you'll find something...:smile:

    This is a song I wrote in 2003... I know you said it wasnt love but just friendship, and Im not exactly sure what kind of goodbye it is between you and them, but maybe you can use something from this if you want...


    I thought to say Im sorry was the hardest thing to do
    But now I know the hardest thing is to say goodbye to you
    I never thought of times when Id have to live without you near
    And when I get up in the morning I still think I'll see you here

    But you are
    In a better place
    Without pain & without tears
    Left me crying here beside my bed
    Alone with all my fears
    You didnt
    Tell me you would leave
    But its true now you are gone
    Makes it harder now to smile a smile
    Coz you know you were the one
    Goodbye darling

    I thought to see you crying was the worst you'd put me through
    Now I know to see you dying was the hardest thing to do
    I never thought Id have to watch you leave this hurtful way
    Now that you are gone forever the sun will never shine the same


    And I know that you'll never come back, my sweet baby
    I cant wait to see you in heaven
    Until then I know you'll guide me through each night


    And you are
    Shining down on me
    You're the star up in the sky
    The brightest & most beautiful
    Lighting up my nights
    And you make
    Me a better girl
    Just by being in my thoughts
    I'll keep you locked inside my heart
    As long as we're apart

    So for now
    Goodbye darling

    Wow Jas,
    That is beautiful. I don't know its appropriate for what I need but I am glad u posted it, it's very very good!
    Maybe something more would help, I don't usually discuss things with other ppl but I am desperate, I have writers block when I think about writing lately.
    I was friends with someone, we kind of dated, and he left and went away, we weren't in love, I know that much. But he touched me in a way that inspired me and made me feel good just to be near him, of course he is a teacher I guess that's why he's so good at it. Anyways, he left for work, I said goodbye, but he said oh no, it's not goodbye I'll be talking to you soon. That was 6mths ago....:( His B'day is coming up and as a gesture of good will I want to email to say Happy Birthday, and Farewell, while it was nice when he was here I need to say goodbye, I am tired of being set up for disappointment and I need closure, saying Goodbye, even in an email I am hoping will help me let go.
    Thanks for your help guys. You are the best, and here I was thinking I didn't have a friend in the world, but u guys are always here when I need someone to listen. Thank you.
