 Excuse me, then! you know my heart;
But dearest friends, alas! must part.
John Gay

**

I sat there with my head in my hands
I couldn't believe what I'd heard;
My heart just froze and after that
I couldn't hear a word.


I still can't remember exactly why
The end was there and then;
Changing instantaneously
Wiped out with a stroke of a pen.

I hope you come back in another life
This chapter is surely closed;
As sure as eggs are eggs
A conundrum this did pose.

Maggie-May

**


Go away girl, go away

And let me pack my dreams.

Now where did I put those yesteryears

Made up with broken seams.

Where shall I sweep the pieces

My God they still look new.

There's a taxi waiting at the door

But there's only room for you.

Goodbye S.S

Spike Milligan

**

I'll make it quick and to the point
I really have to go;
It's not how I'd hoped it would be
I'm sure by now you know.

**

I cannot stand for one more minute

Your toe clippings on the floor;

I thought that you were the man of my dreams

And that you I could adore.

**

I look into my rear view mirror

And see you standing there;

I've got to leave I'm sorry girl

I really don't know where.

**

Sorry you're leaving, 

your loss will be greatly felt,
but I won't over-exaggerate 
and say my heart will melt! 
It's really hard to say goodbye, 
to such a friend and pal, 
with tears in eyes and lump in throat, 
Adios! Au revoir! Farewell!

**

Great minds discuss ideas,
Average minds discuss events,
Small minds discuss people.
So with your great mind and your great ideas you will go far I’m sure.

A leaving poem in the form of an Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
May the rain fall soft upon your field
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand

( A
celtic blessing )

**

A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, 
so nothing can harm you.

A Funny Goodbye Saying

Why can't we get all the people together in the world
that we really like and then just stay together?
I guess that wouldn't work.
Someone would leave.
Someone always leaves.
Then we would have to say good-bye.
I hate good-byes.
I know what I need.
I need more hellos.
Charles M. Schulz

You and I will meet again
When we're least expecting it
One day in some far off place
I will recognize your face
I won't say goodbye my friend
For you and I will meet again

More Leaving Farewell verses, poems to come


Adieu!
I have too grieved a heart
to take a tedious leave.
William Shakespeare

**

Don't be dismayed at goodbyes.
A farewell is necessary before you can meet again.
And meeting again, after moments or lifetime,
is certain for those who are friends.
Richard Bach

Man's feelings are always purest
and most glowing
in the hour of meeting
and of farewell.
Jean Paul Richter

Parting is all we know of heaven
and all we need to know of hell.

Gone - flitted away,
Taken the stars from the night and the sun
From the day!
Gone, and a cloud in my heart.
Alfred Tennyson

Goodbye Poems

**

Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes. 

Henry David Thoreau

**

Saying goodbye is never easy
It's the hardest thing to do;
But what hurts even more
Is not the chance to say it to you.

**

Farewell, My Friends.
My friends to you I bid goodbye
To the friendship that brought me sky;
The year has been swell
As if coming from a wishing well.

But as all things do
I have to bid adieu;
How it pains me to
But there's nothing I can do.

Thank you for the memories
The laughter and the tears;
They'll linger in my heart
As if we never part.

If by chance we meet again
May it be full of blessings in the rain;
Yet for now all that I can say
Is to God for you I'll pray.
Mild G. Calingo

Goodbye Poems

Through The Years

You helped me laugh 
You dried my tears;
Because of you I have no fears.
Together we live 
Together we grow;
Teaching each other what we must know
You came in my life and I was blessed.
I love you friend you are the best.
Release my hand and say good-bye 
Please my friend don't you cry;
I promise you this it's not the end 
'cause like I said you're my friend.
Emily

Remembering My Thoughts of You
God sent me an Angel to call my very own,
I thought we'll always be together from this day on.
I remember all the good times 
and the awesome lovemaking we shared.
All the hopes and dreams we had,
nothing in my life could ever compare
I will always remember your sweet Angelic face,
With a smile brighter than the sun light,
with such beauty and grace.
There will always be a place
deep down in my heart,
a special place where only you
will occupy that part.
I remember the way your body felt 
as I held you close to me.
In my heart and in my soul 
is where you belong and will always be.
Angela Alldredge-Cryer

How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.

Goodbye Quotes

The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be the beginning. 

Ivy Baker Priest


Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair. 

William Cowper

Sorry that you're leaving,
Glad it's only for a while
It will only be a short time
Until we see, again, your smile

You know we're going to miss you
You'll be back.. we're not sure when
So enjoy your new motherhood
Until you're with us, once again
Marjie

Goodbye Friend

~~~~

I know that we will meet again
It will come as a surprise;
I don't know where or when
You'll be standing in front of my eyes.

But for now it's a goodbye to you
And another goodbye from him;
If you tell us where you are
We just may turn up on a whim!

**

I will miss you very much
But all stories have an end;
If this one had gone on much longer
I would have gone round the bend.
Maggie-May

**

Many miles there are to the moon
But we can see it every night;
No matter where we stand on earth
We can see it nice and bright.

Our connection will stretch that far
And we will only have to look;
Knowing that you can see it too
And our friendship can't unhook.

So Goodbye for now my friend
For we will always be;
Sharing a special something
That no one else can see.
Maggie-May

**


Excuse me, then! you know my heart;
But dearest friends, alas! must part.

John Gay


To die and part is a less evil; but to part and live, there, there is the torment. 

George Lansdowne


May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand. 

Irish Blessing




As the presence of those we love is as a double life, so absence, in its anxious longing and sense of vacancy, is as a foretaste of death. 

Anna Brownell Jameson

Promise me you'll never forget me because if I thought you would I'd never leave. 

A.A. Milne

**

I can't believe you've suffered to

Why didn't you say so before;

I didn't know how to tell you

That I wanted out that door.


So at least we agree on something

It's funny but it's true;

We haven't managed that before

We're ending on a coup!

Maggie-May

**

As contraries are known by contraries, so is the delight of presence best known by the torments of absence. 

Alcibiades

Lots more Leaving / Goodbye / Farewell quotes

Good-byes breed a sort of distaste for whomever you say good-bye to; this hurts, you feel, this must not happen again.

Elizabeth Bowen

**

Farewell, adieu and toodle-oo
I'm leaving here at noon;
I've got to go into the big wide world
Not stay here with this silver spoon.

Being my own man will make me feel
Like an adult in my own right;
I can't thank you enough for all you've done
But I need to rise to my full height.

**

I don't know how to tell you this

But I'm really not very well;

So please forgive me for leaving you

Doctor said there's no choice to tell.


The treatment will be very harsh

I'll feel better on my own;

I will be back I'm sure of that

I really mustn't moan.

**

This leaving poem is hurting me

I know it will hurt you too;

I've thought and prayed

But there's nothing else to do.

No more words that can tell

Each other how we feel;

We've said it all a few times now

As it is now time to kneel.

My service to my country

Is something that I must do;

But will you marry me before I go

As I am so in love with you!

Maggie-May

**

Absence diminishes little passions and increases great ones, as the wind extinguishes candles and fans a fire. 

Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld, translated from French

Every parting is a form of death, as every reunion is a type of heaven. 

Tryon Edwards


Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation. 

Kahlil Gibran

Goodbye Poems

Farewell, my sister, fare thee well.
The elements be kind to thee, and make
Thy spirits all of comfort: fare thee well.
William Shakespeare


A man never knows how to say goodbye;
a woman never knows when to say it.
Helen Rowland

And yet more Farewell Leaving Verses Quotes

The return makes one love the farewell. 

Alfred De Musset


You're searching...
For things that don't exist; I mean beginnings.
Ends and beginnings - there are no such things.
There are only middles.


Robert Frost, Mountain Interval, "In the Home Stretch"


Fare thee well! and if for ever,
Still for ever, fare thee well.
Lord Byron


May you have warm words on a cool evening, a full moon on a dark night, and a smooth road all the way to your door. 

Irish Toast


If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden.


Attributed to Claudia Ghandi


Ye flowers that drop, forsaken by the spring,
Ye birds that, left by summer, cease to sing,
Ye trees that fade, when Autumn heats remove,
Say, is not absence death to those who love?


Alexander Pope




No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other's worth. 

Robert Southey


Can miles truly separate you from friends.... If you want to be with someone you love, aren't you already there? 

Richard Bach


Be well, do good work, and keep in touch. 

Garrison Keillor


What shall I do with all the days and hours
That must be counted ere I see thy face?
How shall I charm the interval that lowers
Between this time and that sweet time of grace?


Frances Anne Kemble


Not to understand a treasure's worth till time has stole away the slighted good, is cause of half the poverty we feel, and makes the world the wilderness it is. 

William Cowper

Goodbye Poems

""""""

She went her unremembering way,
She went and left in me
The pang of all the partings gone,
And partings yet to be.


Francis Thompson


Only in the agony of parting do we look into the depths of love. 

George Eliot


Love is missing someone whenever you're apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you're close in heart.

Kay Knudsen


The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected.


Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook


Farewell! God knows when we shall meet again.

 William Shakespeare


In the hope to meet
Shortly again, and make our absence sweet.


Ben Jonson


More Good Bye Quotes

So sweetly she bade me adieu,
I thought that she bade me return.


William Shenstone


But fate ordains that dearest friends must part.

Love reckons hours for months, and days for years; and every little absence is an age. 

John Dryden


Where is the good in goodbye? 

Meredith Willson, The Music Man (Thanks, Thomas)


The best things said come last. People will talk for hours saying nothing much and then linger at the door with words that come with a rush from the heart. 

Alan Alda


May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.


Irish Blessing


That bitter word, which closed all earthly friendships and finished every feast of love farewell! 


Robert Pollok

Drop a tear, and bid adieu;
Though we sever, my fond heart
Till we meet shall pant for you.

Nicholas Rowe


Adieu! I have too grieved a heart to take a tedious leave. 


William Shakespeare


A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.


Irish Blessing


Where'er I roam, whatever realms to see,
My heart untravelled, fondly turns to thee;
Still to my brother turns, with ceaseless pain,
And drags at each remove a lengthening chain.


Oliver Goldsmith, The Traveller




Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending.

Lazurus Long


May brooks and trees and singing hills
Join in the chorus too,
And every gentle wind that blows
Send happiness to you.
Irish Blessing

Goodbye Poems

**

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.
Gilda Radner

Not time yet to say Farewell to the Good-bye Leaving Verses Quotes


Sweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart.


Washington Irving


Farewell! a word that must be, and hath been -
A sound which makes us linger; - yet - farewell!


Lord Byron


Goodbye, goodbye, I hate the word. Solitude has long since turned brown and withered, sitting bitter in my mouth and heavy in my veins. 

R.M. Grenon


Missing someone gets easier every day because even though it's one day further from the last time you saw each other, it's one day closer to the next time you will. 

Author Unknown


Farewell!
For in that word - that fatal word - howe'er
We promise - hope - believe - there breathes despair.
Lord Byron


Let's not unman each other - part at once;
All farewells should be sudden, when forever,
Else they make an eternity of moments,
And clog the last sad sands of life with tears.
Lord Byron


A goodbye isn't painful unless you're never going to say hello again. 

Author Unknown





Never part without loving words to think of during your absence. It may be that you will not meet again in this life. 

Jean Paul Richter


Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened. 

Theodor Seuss Geisel, attributed 


Goodbye Poems


I write this to my daddy

With my eyes so full of tears;

That I can't see you ever

Even after all these years.


You've gone on somewhere without me

That I duly cannot follow;

I wish, I wish I could

I'd follow you tomorrow.

**



Sadness overwhelms me and the grief is hard to bear

I haven't spoke like this before, I just wouldn't dare;

It's too late now to make amends and say what should've been

All the warning signs were there I really should've seen.


You hadn't been yourself for quite a while I thought it was just old age

Maybe if we'd been closer I'd have seen the writing on the page;

Children should be seen not heard was my life times tail

With no relief and no closure now I'm left to wail.

Maggie-May

**

I haven't got passed the end of the street

Where we played together as kids;

The rows of terraced houses

Sliding down the hill on dustbin lids.


We've been together since way back when

I can't remember you not being at my side;

But I must leave and say Goodbye

As you've refused to become my bride.


I wish you well I really do

but I cannot stand and watch;

You throw your life away with him

Our chances now are botched.

**


I've got to leave

I've got to go;

I cannot stay another minute

I'm sorry

I really am

That's ok tho' innit!

**


Sorry you are leaving,

We're sad to see you go,

When you feel homesick,

We're always here you know

Don't forget to keep in touch,

By post, letter or phone,

But of course we'd love to see you, 

There's no place like home!

**


My friends to you I bid goodbye

To the friendship that brought me sky

The year has been swell

As if coming from a wishing well

But as all things do

I have to bid adieu

How it pains me to

But there's nothing I can do

Thank you for the memories

The laughter and the tears

They'll linger in my heart

As if we never part

If by chance we meet again

May it be full of blessings in the rain

Yet for now all that I can say

Is to God for you I'll pray

Mild G.Calingo

Goodbye Leaving Verses Poems





To see the back of you will be a dream come true

You've made these last months for me

Pretty much a living hell;

So off you go don't bother looking back

I'm sure you'll meet someone else that you

Can torture just as well.

**

Our dreams come true, our boat's come in

Wish us well and happiness through and through;

I know it's the other side of the world

But a holiday destination now for you.


Goodbye for now we're on our way

We'll phone as soon as poss;

So don't you worry your little heads

Otherwise we will get cross.


No more hugs or choking up

Our hearts are now so heavy;

That boarding cards to go on board

We need another bevvie!


**


I didn't think I'd feel like this

As it's me that's leaving you;

But this new job is far away

And there's nothing I can do.


This step up the ladder of success

I cannot leave undone;

But I will miss you there is no doubt

We sure have had lots of fun.


Part of me feels heavy

The rest feels very light;

If I stay much longer

I'll cry with all my might.

**


I'm riding off into the sunset

I've got to go alone;

In fact I don't know just how long?

Or if I'm coming home.


So I'll leave you now

Before too much gets said;

As you're looking at me with those eyes

And we might land up in bed.


Bye Bye for now as I've got to go

It's now or never, do or die for me;

If only I'd met you years ago

I'd have given you the key.


My heart is now locked 

My journey sealed in fate;

I'll let you know just how things go

If you're still here on my return - well that would be just great!

**


Gone - flitted away,

Taken the stars from the night and the sun

From the day!

Gone, and a cloud in my heart.

Alfred Tennyson

**


That's how the story goes;

I'm off to go to war

I've wanted to be in the army

Ever since I was four.


I know that you will worry

But I'm doing what I want;

I'll be well trained before

They send me to the front.


Thank you for your loving care

You've been fabulous both of you;

No one could wish for better

You're simply the best you two.

Maggie-May

Leaving Verses



You're leaving now to go to school

Although you're only four;

I'll miss you all day long you know

Until you come home through that door.


We've been very close since you came

Building up such rappor;

Your Mommy can't be with you now

But you she would've adored.


So Daddy will wait for you

By the big school gate;

I'll be there dead on time

And yes I'll bring your mate.


Short Leaving Verses



I step aside for less experience

My knowledge lost on you;

But it's time to go 

My working life all through.

**


I remember thinking goodbyes are hard

God dammit I was right!

I've been thinking about this long and hard

In fact I've been up all night.

**


As one door closes another one appears

So I've enjoyed this space;

The bit that's been between them

And looking at your face.


The door is closing I know not why

I've got to go through it now;

I can't stay and feel locked in

So from your life I'll bow.

**


I've got to go, go now, go now

These famous words are said;

It's too late otherwise

You'll soon be in your bed.

**


I mustn't stay you know to well

The trouble that will be;

Our parents aren't too happy

That there is a you and me

**


Bye, bye for now I'm going on my way

As luck would have it I will be back this way on saturday!

**


I'm left and will be bereft

At the thought of leaving you alone;

But only a few weeks away

And I'll be coming home.

**


May you always be so cheery

And laughter fill your days;

All problems disappear fast

And happiness come your way.

I'll see you soon but now must wend

My weary, weary way!

Maggie-May

**


Short Leaving Verses


This has got to end

There is no other way;

I'm sorry but that's how it is

I'll see you around someday.

**


I've packed my bags

And I'm ready to go;

I'm leaving you for good

But this you already know.


It's very sad it's worked out this way

But life didn't go according to plan;

It was good while it lasted

But I will never be your man.

**


Toodle-oo and toodle-pip

I'm leaving you today;

I've finished with all this 

There's nothing left to say.

**


Have a good day! Is what is said

I know this to be true;

I've been here long enough now

And I'm leaving you!

**


I've got to go, so kiss the kids

I can't bear to see their faces;

I'll be coming home I'm sure I will

But I think that they are all Aces.


I'm creeping out, it's only 4

The morning is still dark;

When I come home I'll hold you all

Taking the kids back down the park.


**

I want to say this is the end

This is the last Goodbye;

I take one look at your little face

And then I heave a sigh!


I don't love your mom anymore

I'm sorry darling but it's true;

That's not the important thing

The important one is YOU!


I love you more than words can say

But I really have to go;

I'll call round twice a week

So I can watch you grow.


Off to the park sometimes

Others into town;

You'll need things new now'n'again

Or the circus for the clowns.

Maggie-May

**


Stone walls have made a prison

I have to escape away;

My heart I may leave behind

But live to see another day.


I like you but I'm not in love

I know that's what you need;

So leaving will be best all round

In fact a gallant deed!

**


Dear Mom and Dad I'm leaving

I'm going away tonight

I'm off to go get married;

As I've met my Mr Right.


I know you will be nonplussed

As you had made many plans;

But they are yours not mine

I want to be with this man.


So thank you but I know

You'd try to stop me if you could;

Forgive me and I'll be back

As I know I should.


I love you both so very much

You've been so wonderful to me;

As soon as I feel the time is right

I'll be back you just wait and see.

Maggie-May

**

With a teardrop in my eye

I am here to say Goodbye;

I won't make it back to see

You as I'm that kind of guy!


But I will be thinking of you

As you've reached into my heart;

On every step of my journey

I feel sad that we had to part.

**


Sad Goodbye Poems


DOES HEAVEN HAVE A PHONE NUMBER? 

Mommy went to Heaven, but I need her here today,

My tummy hurts and I fell down; I need her right away,

Operator, can you tell me how to find her in this book? 

Is heaven in the yellow part? I don't know where to look.

I think my daddy needs her too; at night I hear him cry.

I hear him call her name sometimes, but I really don't know why. 

Maybe if I call her, she will hurry home to me.

Is Heaven very far away, is it across the sea?

She's been gone a long, long time; she needs to come home now!

I really need to reach her, but I simply don't know how. 

Help me find the number please, is it listed under "Heaven"?

I can't read these big, big words; I am only seven.

I'm sorry, operator, I didn't mean to make you cry,

Is your tummy hurting too, or is there something in your eye? 

If I call my church maybe they will know.

Mommy said when we need help, that's where we should go.

I found the number to my church tacked up on the wall.

Thank you operator, I'll give them a call.

Thoughts of hoping

mornings of darkness

laughs of wishing

nights of nightmares.


Tears of needing

lies of fairness

looks of wanting

pain of illness

dreams of touching

**


You're off to go I know not where

I'm still here always left behind;

But rather that than not in your life

In that sort of case I don't really mind.


The emptiness hangs over me

I don't know what to do;

My life is just a shadow

When I'm left here wthout you!

Maggie-May

**


Why did you leave me here in the cold

with nobody to care and nobody to hold

There was no tears and no goodbye

I couldn't show it but I was hurting inside


I begged you to stay, I was only four

But already I knew I couldn't take it

Craig Burr

**


They may be blue skies up above 

But they are a different blue in here;

I feel so sad and empty

I'll have to see a seer.


I can't believe that you're not here 

I'm left behind all lonely and bereft;

You were the last of the family

And now I'm all that's left.

**


Dear Dad, I'm on my way

I will still visit you;

I've got my career going up

And I've lots and lots to do.


It won't be very often

More miles from where I'll be;

So you look after yourself

I'll get there wait and see.

Goodbye Dad Poems

**


You were a lovely father

A brilliant Dad to me;

I followed your example

For all the world to see.


I will miss you very much

You filled my life with love;

I know you will watch over me

Keeping me covered from above.

**


My dad never told a lie

Not that he was aware;

Honest as the day was long

Argue with him I wouldn't dare.


I miss you already Dad

It's only been a day;

So this is the big Goodbye

I don't know what to say.

Maggie-May

Dad I love you, you know that don't you

But I love my Mom even more;

The divorce has upset her greatly

If she knows I see you; it'll make her sore.


So this Goodbye I hope will end

At some time in the future;

But for now that's how it is

Keeping the peace-you've been my tutor!


**


Wherever we may roam

There's no place like home;

That is where the heart is

Moving home you're full of biz.

**


You're leaving us so soon

You haven't been here long;

But we will miss you and your kids

We've all been a happy throng.


We wish you well and 

That your new home be nice;

All full of new things

But not overpriced.

**


I'm leaving home now mom and dad
I've got a pad somewhere to call my own
I'll make as much mess as I want;
Somewhere that will be my home.


You've sheltered me for to long now

I've driven you mad over the years

With my dirty socks and messy room

I know mom I've driven you to tears.


So celebrate! Your home is now your own

For things to stay so nice and clean;

Peace and quiet long overdue

No longer feeling like my canteen.

Maggie-May

Good Luck in your new country
I wish you well in your new life and your new country
I think you're very brave
All new friends and a different way of life
A place for me I hope you'll save. 

I'll be over to visit you
As soon as soon can be;
Just to make sure your alright
And with my own eyes to see.

It will be cooler or so I'm told
Different clothing and sports too;
Music tastes and foods will differ
An adventure just for you.

**

Emigrating? Well what ever next
I think it's cool going off like you two are;
Very brave that's what I think
Starting all anew in a country that's so far.

All the Aussies love the Pommes
Or that's what we are told;
I'm not sure just how true that is
They're stories from of old.

Well we all loved you but you're going
So maybe you'll be back;
Otherwise we'll be getting messages
Saying "I'm alright Jack"

Leaving Poems

~~~~

So a new job well I never
You lucky thing you've landed on your feet;
We wish you well but miss you too
We hope you'll be alreet!

More money and a company car
That's got to be a good step up;
The corporate ladder my friend
Drinking from the high flyers cup!
Congratulations
Maggie-May

**

Well done success has reached you now
A brand new job this time;
You're young and at the very start
Up the ladder you will climb.

Techy things are moving fast
So your training is intense;
You'll have to work very hard
But your success will be immense.

We always knew you had it in you
But we did worry from time to time;
As computers seemed to consume
Whilst you are in your prime.
Maggie-May

What shall I do with all the days and hours
That must be counted ere I see thy face?
How shall I charm the interval that lowers
Between this time and that sweet time of grace?
Frances Anne Kemble

**

This leaving poem is hurting me
I know it will hurt you too;
I've thought and prayed
But there's nothing else to do.

No more words that can tell
Each other how we feel;
We've said it all a few times now
As it is now time to kneel.

My service to my country
Is something that I must do;
But will you marry me before I go
As I am so in love with you!
Maggie-May

**

One kind kiss before we part,
Drop a tear, and bid adieu;
Though we sever, my fond heart
Till we meet shall pant for you.
