How do I Say Goodbye?

by Bob Peterson

How do I Say Goodbye?

How do I say goodbye when I'm not ready to let you go?
How do I say goodbye with my heart still loving you so?
Dreams fade into the night, of a future that will never be.
How can I face tomorrow if you're not there with me?
Lord help me please. How do I say, goodbye?

You've been my sunshine. You warm my soul.
Taring you from my life leaves a jagged hole.
Where do I find courage to face another day?
God, I need You desperately, to help me find my way.
Lord help me please, How do I say goodbye?

How do I say goodbye when you've wrapped yourself around my heart?
How do I say goodbye when it means tearing my life apart?
At times I feel you next to me, but I reach and you're not there.
Left to deal with emptiness, God it's just not fair.
Lord help me please. How do I say, goodbye?

Lord, I could use some sunshine. Won't You please, warm my soul.
I need Your loving presence to come fill this jagged hole.
Lend me some courage to face another day?
God, I need You desperately, to help me find my way.
Lord won't You please help me say goodbye.

How do I say goodbye and admit that part of my life is through?
How do I say goodbye when it means letting go of you?
I'll cling to the promise that this is not the end.
Someday beyond tomorrow I'll be with you again.
So, until that day, for now I'll say goodbye.
Though I'll miss you so, it's time to say goodbye.
