"Our Farewell" as written by Robert Westerholt, Sharon J. Den Adel, Oscar C. Holleman and Rene J. Merkelbach....
In my hands a legacy of memories
I can hear you say my name
I can almost see your smile
Feel the warmth of your embrace
But there is nothing but silence now
Around the one I loved
Is this our farewell?

Sweet darling you worry too much
My child, see the sadness in your eyes
You are not alone in life
Although you might think that you are

Never thought this day would come so soon
We had no time to say goodbye
How can the world just carry on?
I feel so lost when you are not by my side
But there is nothing but silence now
Around the one I loved
Is this our farewell?

So sorry your world is tumbling down
I will watch you through these nights
Rest your head and go to sleep
Because my child this is not our farewell
This is not our farewell

    General CommentIMO, this song is obviously about the passing of a loved one, and that our loved ones, dead or alive, watch over us in our time of need

    and with that said, I've got to say, that the live version of this song is (believe it or not) even more touching and powerful, atleast on my Mother Earth DVD where it's sung as a duet

    General CommentAt first i heard it and i thought of like a parent and their child goin into the world and leaveing them but it can also be about looseing a child but i think it has something to do with a mother child relationship

    General CommentThis is the most amazing song I have ever heard. It got me into WT a little while ago, and, thought I love just about all their songs, this is still my favorite. It is so touching and beautiful; I never get tired of listening to it.

    General CommentWhy do they say it is Tarja Turunen featuring Sharon? xD
    I just saw a part of the video and the other singer is not even alike Tarja... Lol

    Though it is a really beautiful song.
