Goodbye Song:
Just Breathe by Pearl Jam

Listen to this goodbye song:

This is lovely contemplative folk rock song. The lyrics may seem about someone's goodbye before they die, however it can strike a chord with anyone who will find a loved one leaving to be devastating. A comforting song.

Other songs like this:

Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) - Green Day
This acoustic rock ballad, with contemplative lyrics, was originally written as a break-up song, but was famously used in the last Seinfeld episode in 1998. The lyrics are not specific to a romantic break-up, and perfectly capture the feel of a bittersweet end of a journey.

You might like:
Best Days - Graham Colton

Slow guitar folky ballad - about making the most of now, because "here come the rest of our lives".

Time of my life - David Cook

Similar to Best Days but more of a power-ballad. This song is about making the most of the moment and enjoying success to the fullest.

Restless Farewell - Bob Dylan

In this song Bob is looking back over a long life - a retrospective I Did It My Way - and accepts the choices made, for better or worse.
The song is apparently based on the based on the Irish folk song 'The Parting Glass', however, it has a more antisocial tone. Consider the difference of the final paragraph in his song:
"So I’ll make my stand
And remain as I am
And bid farewell and not give a damn" (Dylan)
"Then fill to me the parting glass,
Good night and joy be with you all."(The Parting Glass)
