Goodbye Poems by Teens

Poems about Goodbye's

When friends share experiences together, and then they must part, there is a feeling of sadness. Saying goodbye to friends that we feel connected to is an occasion of somber reflection. It is hard to imagine our lives without them, and yet we have no choice but to go on. It is comforting to know that for however long you will be separated you will always be in each others hearts. It is also an opportunity to be more present to others in your life and to look for opportunities to form new friendships.
