Listen to this song for farewell:
Beautiful friendship affirmation ballad. While not specifically a
goodbye song, it is so lovely and easily dedicated to a loved one that
"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".

I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack
country ballad is about living your life and enjoying the simple things
around you, as life is too short, so make the most of now.
The song has lyrics reminiscent of the Irish farewell blessing:
"I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed".
Footprints In The Sand by Leona Lewis
This song is based on the Footprints in the Sand poem by Mary Stevenson, and is a soulful ballad with some elements of gospel. A very emotional song, and Leona Lewis does great justice to it. The meaning of the song is very similar to "Lean On Me" where it is an affirmation of love or friendship, no matter where we travel in life.
Lean On Me
While not specifically a farewell ballad, the following phrases make this lovely song perfect for a farewell:
"If there is a load that you have to bear,
That you can't carry,
I'm right up the road,
I'll share your load,
If you just call me..."
