Goodbye Is Not Forever
When you lived your life for others
and you loved without condition
When you made so many laugh
and your smile won’t be forgotten
When you left behind an empty place
that no one else can fill
When the friendships that you shared
long to be renewed
When you built your life on hope
and fulfilled it every day
The footprints that you left behind
will bring us face to face
So, goodbye is not forever,
You’re only steps away
