45+ Goodbye Poems For Friends

Crafting a goodbye poem for your friends is a wonderful way to preserve cherished memories. Reminiscing the school days through a self-crafted goodbye poem, a blogger writes, “I wrote this one (a letter) when I was leaving school, and I was going to miss my friends. We all had such mixed feelings those days. Now, after five years of completion from school, I dedicate the letter to them (my school friends), who are not so much in touch with each other, but I know we always stay in touch through memories. This is to remind myself and tell the world I still remember them (i).”

Here are such heart-warming goodbye poems for friends that will remind your friends how much you value them irrespective of the distance.

1. Dear Friend

Dear friend, ’tis hard to say farewell,
And harder yet it is to tell,
In parting words, how strong the tie
We sever now in this good-bye.

We all shall miss thy gentle grace.
Thy willing hand and cheerful face;
No other friend thy place can fill.
Though absent we shall claim thee still;

God bless the work thou hast begun,
And guard thee in the years to come.
And when thy heart is weary, or alone.

—Grinnell Willis

2. Moving Day

I come to say goodbye poem

Image: IStock

Today I come to say goodbye
I will miss you, I can’t deny
But as I move to another town
Leaving you makes me frown.

I will stay in touch, I promise that
I will call you often and we will chat.
It won’t be the same I know
But we can call and say hello.

So I won’t say goodbye, I’ll say so long
You’re a friend indeed, one who is lifelong
The bonds we share will never break
We will keep in touch, there is no mistake.

—Catherine Pulsifer

3. Adieu!

I will not say farewell

Image: IStock

Reader, “Adieu!” — I will not say “farewell!”
That word, full-fraught with sorrow as a knell,
Breathes forth a strain of sadness to mine ear,
And is too often mother to a tear!
“Adieu!” speaks hopeful that we yet may meet
And with each other hold communion sweet.
I thought that I have said doth give thee cheer
I’ve made a friend of thee — and friends are dear!
In this stern world of ours each friend we gain
Makes life sweeter, and helps to soothe life’s pain!
Remember, then, dear friend, before we part,
These simple strains are from a glowing heart
That seeks to find an echo to its voice
In the heart of thine — and, finding that, rejoice!

—John Imrie

4. Happy Be

Ever mayst thou happy be,
Life holds precious gifts for thee;
E’en if now a shadow lay
Around thy heart – ‘would pass away.
Ne’er forget the friend you leave
On Huron’s shore, and believe
Regretfully I part from thee.

—Eloise A. Skimings

5. My Friend

My friend poem

Image: IStock

We’re parting
Our ways,
But I’ll never
Forget you,
The day
When I had
First met you.
Over the years
We’ve been through thick and thin,
But I’ll never forget you,
My friend.
I love you,
Held you so close to my heart.
None above you
Drawn to you from the start.
I can’t believe
I’m leaving you,
But the love I’ve found
Was oh so true.
And I hope
It will never end.
I’ll miss you,
My friend.
We’re not on the
Same road,
But it doesn’t mean I’ll
Forget you.
I’ll still help
Carry the load
The only thing
I don’t regret is you.
Holding onto
What we have,
Just can’t
Let it go.
It’s just too special,
What we had,
And I just want
To let you know
That just because
We’re parting ways
Doesn’t mean
I’ll ever forget you.
The day
When I had first
Met you,
My friend.

—Shaquria Mckoy

6. Saying Goodbye

Saying goodbye is never easy
Actually, it makes me queasy
So let’s just say see ya later
Keep in touch by email or notepaper.
Goodbyes seem like the end
But we will always be friends
We may be separated by miles
Just say keep in touch and smile!

—Catherine Pulsifer

7. Goodluck, Friend

It’s sad to see you leave
But I wish you luck in wherever
you may be
I hope you remember our fond
memories of this town
Don’t forget to keep in touch
But I know you will anyway
Here’s a goodbye for now, friend.


8. Always Call You Friend

Though we have to say farewell
This won’t be the end.
I’ll think about you all the time
And always call you friend.
We’ll write, we’ll call, we’ll remember
and it won’t be so bad.
Our memories will help us smile
and we won’t feel so sad.

—Sheron J. Hendricks

9. See You Later

You have been tough, you’ve been caring, funny, daring, witty, entertaining
You’re a therapist, a trainer, a food and movie critic, partner in crime
You’ve been everything a person could ask for in a friend and more
I hate to see you go
But I know that you must
You’re moving on to a great big unknown
I’m so proud of you
And so glad you have a phone
So I won’t say goodbye
I’ll just say see you later, thanks for the memories!


10. Loved A Little While

At least we loved a little while, goodbye to friend

Image: IStock

And so we part in friendship, yes,
With neither pain nor bitterness,
And, unbewitched, we plainly see
The meaning of our comedy;
Yet this we know — and, knowing, smile,
At least we loved a little while!

The vows we made, the faith we swore
To love — and love forevermore,
Are quite forgot; we turn and go
Certainly, that is better.
Yet though Romance cannot beguile,
At least we loved a little while.

Because you loved me, I have known
A world I could not find alone,
And from my love did you not gain
A glimpse of palaces in Spain?
What if we missed the Blissful Isle,
At least we loved a little while.

Good-by — upon your brow I press
The kiss of faithful friendliness,
For though we part from sorrow free,
We lived a space in Arcady,
And we can whisper, with a smile,
“At least we loved a Little While!”

—Berton Braley

11. Good-night, Good-bye

Say not good-bye! dear friend, from thee
A word too sad that word would be.
Say not good-bye! Say but good-night,
And say it with thy tender, light,
Caressing voice, that links the bliss
Of yet another day with this.
Say but good-night!

Say not good-bye! say but good-night;
A word that blesses in its flight,
In leaving hope of many a kind,
Sweet day like this we leave behind.
Say but good-night! Oh never say
A word that taketh thee away!
Say but good-night!

—Dora Greenwell

12. Good-bye Means Not Farewell

” Good-bye! good-bye!” what kindly words,
As they fall on the parting ear,
Like the singing of summer birds,
With their wonderful power to cheer;
Their meaning true —
With kiss and sigh —
“Good-bye! good-bye!”

“Good-bye! good-bye! ” means not “Farewell!”
But a wish for our Father’s care!
How sweet when hearts their fullness tell
In the words of that loving prayer;
“Good-bye! good-bye!”
May God be nigh;
The meaning true —

These words are sometimes idly said,
Like passing sunbeams on the wall,
And on the heart fall cold and dead,
‘Tis then no fervent prayer at all.
But plain — ”Good-bye!” —
A formal cry,
No kiss nor sigh.
Ah, friends! — why? why?

Remember, when you say — ” Good-bye!’
Life is uncertain, short, and fleet;
Then, let the love-light in your eye
Show friendship’s bond is strong and sweet
Thus, hand-in-hand,
Friends understand
The meaning true —

—John Imrie

13. No Regrets

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!

—Catherine Pulsifer

14. Goodbye Buddy

You came into her life like a healer
You traveled a long smooth road like two rulers
You share your good and bad days together
And talked about the future ahead and ways to make it better
Where have all your PROMISES gone to?
She was still there waiting for you
Sitting like a solid rock on a beach waiting to be moved
The waves come and go
Leaving the rock in deep sorrow

Good luck she says with teary eyes
Thank you for the great memories and the lies
The heart you stole will always be by your side
May your beautiful kaiga stay safe
Isaaa !!goodbye !

—Ulamila Tinadrua

15. Goodbye My Dear Friend

We’ve been friends for quite a while
Ups and downs always keeping us on our toes,
You always seemed to think that you could defile
The way I thought about friends and foes.
We always got into fights over and over
And it somehow became a part of our lives,
Slowly hurting me more and more
Until the day I seeked relaxation from knives.
We took a break from our friendship last summer
And somehow I still don’t think I can trust you,
Not being your friend rarely comes as a bummer

But after all that’s happened I know your friendship isn’t true.
You told me that I could trust what you say
But I won’t let you fool me this time,
I won’t let you play me like you did day after day
It’s come time for me to finally cut the line.
I’m sorry.

—Trysta Due

16. Goodbye – My Dear Friend

Morning tea today
Wasn’t like any other day
Saw the empty table at which we shared
Jokes, laughter, fears we had

It was only yesterday
We had a cup of tea to start the day

A gift of friendship you gave
A lovely bracelet, my daughter’s fave

You never said anything
To me life was in full swing

But it’s now clear
Goodbye – my friend I hold dear

Never again will I drop-by
For mechado , pancit, or my fave batchoy

I will never forget what you did
For there is nothing you ever hid

*Paalam, you once told me
*Bamahuta, I wish I told you

So this is what I’ll say my friend
You left a legacy that will never end.

—Jun Salvador Pasilabban

17. Saying Goodbye

Saying goodbye, poem for friend

Image: IStock

Saying goodbye doesn’t mean you are no more my friend,
Saying goodbye doesn’t mean our relationship is dead.
Saying goodbye doesn’t mean it is forever,
Saying goodbye doesn’t mean that it is the end.
Saying goodbye simply means that I will really miss you,
Till the time comes when the two of us meet up again.


18. Good Luck, Dear

I hate to see you go
But I’m so glad you’re chasing your dreams
I know you will do great things in this new chapter of your life
Your kindness and quick wit,
You charming demeanor
Your infectious laugh and killer smile
Will get you far
And I’m sure you will make many new friends who will love you so much
But never forget, I will always be here
Missing you dearly
Best of luck friend!


19. Goodbye

Many moments in my life,
Both happy times and say,
Have been shared with you my friend,
For that I’m forever glad.
We’ve been there for each other,
Through easy times and rough,
I know one thing for certain,
I’ll miss you very much.
Goodbye My Friend.


20. Farewell

I never would have guessed it
that this day would come
when we would have to separate
and have to end the fun.
But even though it’s ending
and we are both in tears
please know that I will think of you
throughout the future years.
Farewell my friend.


21. Goodbye

All good things must come to an end,
it breaks my heart to see it end.
I must send you, with a goodbye and a hug,
for you are my dearest friend.
I must say goodbye, I shall see you again.


22. Saying Goodbye

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!

—Catherine Pulsifer

23. Will Miss You

Who will I go out for lunch and stay for hours with?
Whose house will I run to when I have a broken heart?
Whose couch will I crash on when I’m too exhausted to move?
Whose shoulder will I lean on when times are tough?
I don’t know what I will do without you.
But I’m sure you are onto great things in this new journey in which you are about to embark. I’ll survive, dear friend, but gosh it will be hard!


24. Time To Part Ways

Goodbye my friend, it’s time to part ways,
But don’t be sad for there are brighter days.
The memories we’ve shared will never fade,
Our time together I would never trade.

This is not the end, but a new start,
As you leave a new journey you will chart.
May success and happiness come your way,
Each and every single day!

— Catherine Pulsifer

25. Epilogue

Maybe our paths will cross
when this universe folds in and makes another.
Maybe, at the point
when all that is, and all that’s ever been,
collapses into everything else and is remade,
our paths will cross, however briefly, and
our terminus becomes a junction.
It may be a long shot. I will take it
and hope and trust our paths will cross again.

— Oliver Tearle

26. Goodbye My Friend

Goodbye, my friend, goodbye
I don’t want you to go,
I don’t wish us cry,

But what can I do?
I can’t hold you,
I can’t have you by myself forever….

The tears started coming as we waved.
Our last goodbye, as we said
Our last words, and as we look at

Each other for the last time….Goodbye
You’ll have to go, this I know
I thought I was prepared for our parting,

But I wasn’t and now the time has come,
It breaks my heart to see you go, far away from me,

Maybe we’ll meet again, someday, some place
If it’s God’s will that we should ….Hope
That this would keep me alive…Pray let it be soon;

If not, then let our last farewell be a memorable one,
Sad, perhaps but may all the moments we shared be
In it…..Goodbye, my dear, ……Goodbye.

— Lawrence Hiung

27. Gone

Emotions ran through my head.
I found myself wishing I was dead
All because you were moving away.
I knew I would never see you another day.

You got in your car and waved goodbye,
And then I was left all alone to cry.
I felt helpless and all alone.
I could only talk to you on the phone.

You were my neighbor and my best friend.
Why, oh why, did it have to end?
You made me so happy, so carefree.
You made it feel okay for me to be me.

It’s been almost a year since you moved away,
But it feels like it was only yesterday.
I remember everything you used to do.
It may seem impossible, but it’s true.

You were the best friend I ever had.
Now that you left me, I am beyond sad.
I love and I miss you more than you’ll ever know.
You’ve taught me so much, and I want to say thank you.

— Stephanie M. Wendorf

28. There Is No Goodbye

There is no goodbye, only hello again,
There may just be a time in between.
I cherish our time my friend,
I will miss you, that I mean!

I would prefer not to say,
Words that have such an ending.
For our time together
Never required any mending.

Time apart can be sad,
I will miss you I must admit
Saying goodbye just makes me mad
Our friendship we have, we both commit.

So let’s never say goodbye, only hello again,
We will keep in touch, by phone by mail
We will see each other again so let’s not complain
We will learn about each other’s life in detail.

— Julie Hebert

29. You Will Be Missed

Saying goodbye
Was the hardest thing to do.
I never thought I would,
Especially not to you.

You always listened
And knew what to say,
Knew when to give a hug
When I was having a bad day.

No one will ever take your place.
I can always promise you this.
It’s hard to find someone like you,
So know you’ll always be missed.

— Stephannie Beaudette

30. Goodbye To You

How do you say goodbye,
To someone as sweet as you?
I never thought this day would come,
That farewell would feel so blue.

I will miss you when you’re gone,
I will miss our laughs and cries.
I will miss everything about you,
Even your unhelpful advice.

We’ve had our highs and lows,
And we’ve always come out on a high,
It’s just too bad that now you’re leaving,
And now we have to say goodbye.

I hope one day to see you again,
As I am feeling very blue,
So here I am to say good-bye,
Don’t forget me, I won’t forget you.

— Julie Hebert

31. A New Chapter, My Friends

Our time together has come to an end,
But a new chapter, we must now attend.
We’ll cherish the moments we’ve shared,
And look forward to the adventures ahead.
In the garden of friendship, we bloomed,
Nurtured by trust, our souls are consumed.
Now, as we bid our farewells with grace,
Our spirits remain connected, an eternal embrace.
Though paths diverge, and distance grows wide,
The memories we made will never subside.
For they reside in the tapestry of our souls,
Forever cherished, as life’s grandest scrolls.
So, let us raise a glass, to the moments we’ve known,
To the love we’ve sown, to the friendships grown.
As we embark on new horizons, hand in hand,
Our bond is unbreakable, forever to withstand.

— Unknown, readgoodpoems.com

32. Saying Goodbye

I feel the time is getting close,
When we will have to part.
I’ll show that I’ll miss you,
With the last words from my heart.

We must be dreaming,
For it has gone too fast.
The time we have spent together,
Will soon be in our past.

I’ll forget this day is coming,
Today I stand here.
Trying to tell you,
How much I really care.

We’ll go our separate ways,
And I’ll make it if I try.
Just hold on to our memories,
Say Never, Say Goodbye!!!

— Eriel Armitage, poetryforyoursoul.weebly.com

33. Goodbye My Friend

The path we traveled, hand in hand,
Carved by love, a golden strand.
And though our journey takes a different turn,
The lessons we’ve learned, we’ll forever discern.
Each shared moment, a precious treasure,
Painted on the canvas of our friendship’s measure.
From whispered secrets in the midnight air,
To adventures embarked with daring and flair.
For as long as memories persist,
We shall exist, entwined in bliss.
A tapestry of shared experiences, we hold dear,
Guiding us forward, casting out all fear.

— Unknown, readgoodpoems.com

34. Goodbye, My Dearest Friend

The hardest part of any friendship
is when it is time to say goodbye,
and even though I wished I could make you stay,
I know I have to let you spread your wings and fly.

For life is a journey that needs to be traveled,
and I am certain you’ll make it through.
I just want you to know and never forget
that I will surely miss you.

So follow your heart and never give up,
as dreams and wishes do come true.
I know that someday we’ll meet again,
so never forget I will be praying for you.

— Leilani Hermosa Petersen

35. See Ya Soon

As you leave for new horizons,
My heart cannot help but ache.
Our memories will be cherished,
A bond we vow to never break.

Though distance may keep us apart,
I pray your journey brings success.
Goodbye is not what we say,
See ya soon, bring less distress.

— Catherine Pulsifer

36. Promise To Stay In Touch

I couldn’t find the right words
Nothing seemed to rhyme
To write something for you all
I think it will take time

Because when you have friends
That are very hard to find,
There’s so much to say
Because you make everything alright.

So I will tell you right now
Exactly what I need to say
To show you how much I appreciate
You being there every day.

You’re worth more than anyone,
Even a million pounds
Because you always know what to say
When I am feeling down.

You make me smile big smiles
And my days so very bright,
And when I lose my way,
You find me in the night.

I sometimes wish I could explain
How much you mean to me,
But it’s just not possible
To list a billion things.

So I just wanted to say
I love you so, so much,
And I hope you never leave me.
Promise to stay in touch.

— Louise More

37. Taking Leave of a Friend

Blue mountains lie beyond the north wall;
Round the city’s eastern side flows the white water.
Here we part, friend, once forever.
You go ten thousand miles, drifting away
Like an unrooted water-grass.
Oh, the floating clouds and the thoughts of a wanderer!
Oh, the sunset and the longing of an old friend!
We ride away from each other, waving our hands,
While our horses neigh softly, softly . . .

— Li Bai, poemanalysis.com

38. A Friend Like No Other

As you pack up your bags and leave,
I’ll try not to be too sad, but I’ll grieve.
You were like a brother from another mother,
You’re a friend like no other!

Don’t forget to send me a postcard or two,
From all the amazing things you’re going to do.
I’ll miss you more than words can express,
A friendship like ours is hard to suppress!

— Catherine Pulsifer

39. To My Friend

I am so glad that I met you
Although our acquaintance wasn’t long
You have made a big impact in my life
And it is thanks to you
Why I remain strong

Your friendship means the world to me
Believe me, it truly does
And I just wanted you to know that
From me you will always find love

Now we are going our separate ways
Maybe never to meet again
As long as our friendship holds true
Our connection will forever stand

We may not have been best friends
But that is just a title
For the kind of friendship we do share
Is more active than it is idle

I am going to miss you
I know we said we would keep in touch
But that is what everyone always says
But it never seems to mean much

So this is why I am telling you now
How much you truly mean to me
Because anything could happen in the future
Tomorrow is something I may never see

Yes I am going to miss you
And I wish you the very best
And please always try to remember
That you are truly blessed!

— Sarah R. Leavell, poetryforyoursoul.weebly.com

40. Farewell

Farewell, so long
Means I am gone
Today, tomorrow
Leaving brings sorrow.
See ya around
The words they sound
Like goodbye
I say with a sigh!

— Sam Fickinsen

41. It’s time to say goodbye my friend

It’s time to say goodbye my friend, It’s time to say goodbye,
Our friendships lasted so long, and most of our friends have gone.
We have known each other since birth,
Spent a long time on this earth.
We have been dear friends for years,
A lot of people may shed some tears,
It’s time to say goodbye my friend, It’s time to say goodbye.

It’s time to say goodbye my friend, It’s time to say goodbye,
it’s the very last thing we have to do,
We saw our lives all the way through.
I am with you all the way,
Because this is our final day.
I see that smile right on your face,
Because the end is near and it’s God’s own grace.
It’s time to say goodbye my friend, It’s time to say goodbye.

— Allan Robinson, poeticous.com

42. Never Part

When I saw you
in the hall,
I knew you would
be the best of all.

I talked to you for
the very first time,
you ended up being
my partner in crime.

When you cry
I’m going to cry too,
because the pain
is shared between me and you.

Since we’re going
a different way,
don’t be sad because
in my heart you will stay

Miles apart
but friends from the start,
I know in my heart
we will never part.

— Bailee Simler

43. A Little Work

A little work, a little play
To keep us going – and so, good-day!
A little warmth, a little light
Of love’s bestowing – and so, good-night!
A little fun, to match the sorrow
Of each day’s growing – and so, good-morrow!
A little trust that when we die
We reap our sowing! And so – good-bye!

— George Du Maurier

44. Friends Never Say Goodbye

So long, farewell
My Angel Eyes.
I wish you well with
Our last goodbyes.
I’ll always love you
More than you will know
And that is why now
I have to go.

You’ll see me, maybe,
In a time far gone
I’ll let you know that
I will be long.
I’ve had so much fun
With you these years
I’ll go away with
All my tears.

Have fun, my dear
I wish you well
Please don’t forget
How hard I fell.

— Chris Draven, powerpoetry.org

45. A Farewell

Flow down, cold rivulet, to the sea,
Thy tribute wave deliver:
No more by thee my steps shall be,
For ever and for ever.

Flow, softly flow, by lawn and lea,
A rivulet then a river:
Nowhere by thee my steps shall be
For ever and for ever.

But here will sigh thine alder tree
And here thine aspen shiver;
And here by thee will hum the bee,
For ever and for ever.

A thousand suns will stream on thee,
A thousand moons will quiver;
But not by thee my steps shall be,
For ever and for ever.

— Alfred Lord Tennyson

46. Goodbye, Best Friend

Things may change from this day on.
Here with us is where you belong.
Someone like you there is no other.
You’re the closest thing I have to a brother.

You have only been in my life for quite a short while,
But even when I’m down you seem to make me smile.
That place in my heart you will always stay.
Such good memories, they will never fade away.

The tears I shed, I shed for you,
But now it’s time to make your dreams come true.
For all the times you have helped me out,
A good future ahead of you, I have no doubt.

You gave me confidence, you gave me pride.
Even when you’re gone I’ll be by your side.
For all those fears in which we shared.
To say goodbye, I’m not prepared.

For you, I’ll hold my head up high,
Keep myself strong to say goodbye.
It may hurt, and I may cry.
I think to myself and I wonder why.

What we’ll do, I really don’t know.
All I know is I will never let go.
You’re a true friend, for that is true.
When I was down, I came to you.

I am so glad that we became friends,
But this isn’t where our journey ends.
The memories we have will last forevermore.
I will always love you, for that I’m sure.

Always in my heart and in my heart you will stay.
I can’t believe today’s the day.
You made me stronger, and that I believe,
But now it’s time to let you leave.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What can I say instead of goodbye?
