How Am I Supposed to Say Goodbye?

How to Say Goodbye! 

By: Michael W.Smith 

Tell me when the time we had slipped away
Tomorrow turned to yesterday
And I don't know how
Tell me what can stop this river of tears
It's been building up for years
For this moment now

Here I stand
Arms open wide
I've held ya close
Kept ya safe
Till you could fly

Tell me where the road ahead is gonna bend
And how to harness up the wind
And how to say goodbye

Tell me why
Why does following your dreams
Take you far away from me
And I knew that it would

Tell me how to fill the space you left behind
And how to laugh instead of cry
And how to say goodbye

Here I stand
Arms open wide
I've held ya close
Kept ya safe
Till you could fly

Tell me where the road ahead is gonna bend
And how to harness up the wind
And how to say goodbye


You'll  Never Fully Know!

By: Jordan Strang 

When the day is done
When the time has come
To say goodbye to a brother in Christ
To a joint heir with the Son
Then stop right there
Lift them in prayer
And when you pray thank Him for His grace
That has brought you to this place

 Then say goodbye in a way that tells of the love you have for them
The love of Christ in deed and truth, the love that knows no end
And as they turn to walk away
Stay and watch them go
For if this is your last meeting on earth you’ll never fully know

 The time you’ve spent
In praising Him
Fellowshipping in the Lord Jesus Christ
And exalting God with them
Although they leave
This’ll never cease
For when we live in the light of Christ
It’ll last for eternity

So say goodbye in a way that tells of the love you have for them
The love of Christ in deed and truth, the love that knows no end
And as they turn to walk away
Stay and watch them go
For if this is your last meeting on earth, you’ll never fully know

 When He returns
And takes us home
To the place beyond the skies
He’s prepared for His own
With Him we’ll be
Eternally
So let us watch for His soon return
Will you spread His love with me?

And say goodbye in a way that tells of the love you have for them
The love of Christ in deed and truth, the love that knows no end
And as they turn to walk away
Stay and watch them go
For if this is your last meeting on earth, you’ll never fully know

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God to them who are the called according to His purpose" Romans 8:28

  1. Thank-you for sharing, Elanee.
    I can only try to imagine myself in your position, and how I would answer your question, "how am I supposed to say goodbye?"...I suppose it is differant for each & every person & situation. But as you quoted deary, "all things"-- and all means ALL, even{ and especially!} when we do not understand it. I can only weep with those who are weeping, and rejoice in the hope we have in Christ that He will "work all things for our good". Just from reading your posts here, I can see a work that God is doing in you sweet girl, and though it is so very hard, it is also so very precious! Keep pressing into Jesus, my sister in Christ! {{{Hugs!}}}
