We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day
Keep smiling through
Just like you always do
'Till the blue skies
Drive the dark clouds far away
So, will you please say hello
To the folks that I know
Tell them I won't be long
They'll be happy to know
That as you saw me go
I was singing this song...

The Call - Regina Spektor
This pretty song featured in the movie The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, and is also war-themed.
The meaning has been described as about those you trust in difficult times, about going away to do what is right and just:

And follow the light
You'll come back when it's over
No need to say goodbye".
For Good from the musical Wicked
This duet, between the characters Elphaba and Glinda in the musical play Wicked, is inspired by the story of the Wizard of Oz.
It is sung at the end of the play, and reflects on how their friendship has changed them "for good", before they part:
"It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you"
