This country song is from parent to child about the various stages of life, and to make the most of now:

Into My Arms - Nick Cave
Written and performed by Nick Cave, this is not so much a song about goodbye, but rather about the return of a loved one 'into my arms', wherever they might be.
It is a deeply spiritual song despite possible claims to agnostism in the lyrics.
The above two points are expressed perfectly in the first verse:
"I don't believe in an interventionist God
But I know, darling, that you do
But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
Not to intervene when it came to you
Not to touch a hair on your head
To leave you as you are
And if He felt He had to direct you
Then direct you into my arms"
Whether you are a parent, lover, or a very close friend, this song will certainly affect you when you hear it, if you are missing someone dear to you.
