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 got to let you spread your wings and fly.

For life is a journey that needs to be travelled
and I am certain you'd 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,
for I know that someday we'll meet again,
so never forget I will be praying for you.

My friend and I are going to different secondaries at the end of this year. It's so depressing because there are few people who I enjoy being around, I will really really miss her. I only knew her for about 2 years but during that time we had some great memories, I will really miss that girl!!! Why do the best things always end?

Me and salah were so close, starting from the primary school times up to college level. we always tried to encourage each other. The life we have passed was not that much simple; because our country was suffering from starvation and it was not simple for most of the guys to stay at home. All our class mates have fled abroad but me and my friend we chose to stay till we complete our studies.........after that was the story

Me and this boy I knew grew up together and we did everything together I was very close to him and him to me. As we grew up I developed feelings but would have never said a word I think he knew anyway. We eventually hit high school he choose popularity over me because I was different I should have said something. Sometimes I blame myself for not fighting for our friendship I fought but not enough I guess and he left me we never spoke again. I sank into a deep depression that took me a long time to get over till this day I cry because no one knew me like he did and I lost my best friend if I had the chance to talk to him again I would tell him how much I love him in a friend sense and miss his companionship. I also would let him know he has left a scar that will never heal.

My best friend and I were the closest, then anyone could ever imagine. We were closer then family I would say. My dad had decided he wanted to start his life fresh, and new. And he said the only way to do that is to move, and we had to all pick a place to move, my 2 older sisters had both said England, or Paris (We spoke French all the time). I thought both of the idea's were dumb. My older brother said "Lets move to Spokane." As soon as I heard that I was thinking, a new place wouldn't be so bad. But I still wouldn't budge. As moving say came. Me and my best friend hugged for 20 minutes, not even talking. Then she gave me a heart shaped necklace, and there was only a half. And on my side it said Never, and on hers it said forget me. And I was so happy cause I had always wanted that. I hoped into the car, and drove off to the airport...

It was a Saturday, my last day in California. Me and my girlfriend decided to stay with each other for the night. We were 16 at the time so needless to say our options were limited. We both agreed to a long distance relationship... It lasted two weeks. We've been together for about three years so we decided to remain best friends, seeing as a relationship was out of the question until HS is over. So we both agreed that we would try again after. Now, we are both HS graduates, and I'm going off to the Marines. I quickly pack my bags and head off to LA, before I go to boot. We meet up and start talking - expressing how much we missed each other. Now I made an extra stop to the jewelry store to get something special. Just as I was going to ask for her hand, she tells me she's engaged. She told me before I could get the ring out of my pocket. Now I'm deploying, she has no idea I was going to propose. I intend to tell her.. when I say farewell to a friend.

It always happened to me, almost my special friends leaved the Philippines for a better future in the other country I cannot blame them but I really hate saying goodbye always. But now I accept the reality that when you love someone you must also learn to say goodbye

I recently graduated from high school and I miss all my friends. I definitely would say that goodbye is the hardest thing to say, and especially when you have shared most of your life with your friends.
