"It's Never Easy to Say Goodbye" as written by Allen Shamblin and Bernie Nelson....
Jimmy climbs on board that ol' yellow bus
It sure looks big in his little eyes
His momma waves, as her tears kick up the dust
It's never easy to say goodbye

Julie Rae in her pearl white wedding gown
Has found her wings and it's time to fly
It's all her dad can do to keep from breakin' down
It's never easy to say goodbye

It ain't easy to ever say goodbye
It ain't easy lettin' go of the ones you love
But believe me, we'll meet again by and by
If not here then somewhere up above

I've had some friends that I lost along the way
They've been called on down the line
Though their time was short, I think about them every day
It ain't easy to say goodbye

It ain't easy to ever say goodbye
It ain't easy lettin' go of the ones you love
But believe me, we'll meet again by and by
If not here then somewhere up above

Now the time has come to go our separate ways
It's alright if you wanna cry
Though I know we'll meet again someday
It's never easy to say goodbye

It ain't easy to ever say goodbye
It ain't easy lettin' go of the ones you love
But believe me, we'll meet again by and by
If not here then somewhere up above

    General CommentI never thought about saying goodbye this way - having such trust in me that I'll see people again. It never feels like such a problem.
    Death is another point though, since I don't believe the "somewhere up above". A person is then gone to me, but memories stay.
