No need to say goodbye."

We'll Meet Again by Vera Lynn
Indulge in some wartime nostalgia with this classic song by Vera Lynn. 'We'll Meet Again' is a famous song of the Second World War era, and its optimistic tone a resonant comfort for soldiers and their families and sweethearts who were separated by the war.
It's a perfect song for masking a heartbreak with a smile:
"We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day..."
True Colours - Cyndi Lauper
Beautiful friendship affirmation ballad.
While not specifically a goodbye song, it is so lovely and easily dedicated to a loved one that is leaving:
"If this world makes you crazy
and you've taken all you can bear
you call me up
because you know I'll be there".
Into My Arms - Nick Cave
Written and performed by Nick Cave, this is not so much a farewell song, 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.
