It is always difficult to say "goodbye" to people with whom we've spent a precious time.
Goodbyes are always hard, most of us here have done it so many times before and know how you feel. But, each memory you take with you throughout your journey of experiences will be a jewel in your heart to cherish forever..
I didn't ask for it to be over, but then again, I never asked for it to begin. For that's the way it is with life, as some of the most beautiful days come completely by chance. But even the most beautiful days eventually have their sunsets.
Here is where the road divides
Here is where we realize
The sculpting of the Father's great design
Thru' time you've been a friend to me
But time is now the enemy
I wish I didn't have to say goodbye...
Pray for me and I'll pray for you
Pray that we will keep the common ground...
--"Pray For Me" Michael W. Smith
Packing up the dreams of God planted in the fertile soil of you
Can't believe the hopes He's granted means a chapter in your life is through
But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone cause our hearts in big and small ways
will keep the love that keeps us strong
Friends are friends foreverE/DT>
--"Friends" Michael W. Smith
How lucky I am to have something that makes saying good-bye so hard.
Parting is all we know of heaven and all we need to know of hell.
Don't be dismayed by good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.
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 goodbye. I hate goodbyes. I know what I need. I need more hellos.
We can never turn back the pages of time, though we may wish to relive a happy moment, or say goodbye just one last time, we never can, because the sands of time continue to fall, and we can't turn the hourglass over.
When I see your smile, and I know it's not for me, that's when I'll miss you.
A part of you has grown in me, together forever we shall be, never apart, maybe in distance, but not in the heart.
Every goodbye makes the next hello closer.
It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right, I hope you had the time of your life.
Treasure each other in the recognition that we do not know how long we shall have each other.
--Joshua Loth Liebman
Where you used to be there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in daytime, and falling into at night.
--Edna St. Vincent Millay
Side by side, miles apart, dear friends are always close to the heart.
When one door closes, another one opens, but we often look so long and regretfully at the closed door that we fail to see the one that has opened for us.
--Alexander Graham Bell
Truly good friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.
Good-night, good-night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good-night till it be morrow.
--Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet)
I've learned that: goodbyes will always hurt, pictures can never replace being there, memories forget the hard times, words can never replace feelings, and heros often go unsung.
The worst way to miss someone is when they are right beside you and yet you can never have them.
Just because something ends doesn't mean it never should have been.
I thought I would look back at the tears and laugh. But, I never thought I would look back at the laughter and cry.
Recognize the loss of a love: It is as though you were dead. There is nothing to be done. Only accept it . . . and hurt.
Let's not say goodbye... for goodbyes end in tears and I don't want to remember you crying now... I want to remember you as you are now ... happy.
