Goodbye For Now by Kathy Troccoli

by Andrea K.
(Buffalo, NY)

I came upon this song on one of my Kathy Troccoli albums years ago and it was so touching to me.

When my father died unexpectedly, I came upon the song again and the meaning and sentiment just hit me so profoundly.

This song captured everything my mother was going through in losing my father. Even though life seemed impossible to live without him, we can look forward to the day that we'll all be together again when our lives on Earth are over. Until that time, we say "Goodbye just for now".


I can't believe that you're really gone now.
Seems like it's all just a dream
How can it be that the world would go on
When something has died within me
Leaves will turn, my heart will burn
With colors of you
Snow will fall, but I'll recall your warmth
Summer wind, breathing in your memory
I'll miss you

But there will be a time
When I'll see your face
And I'll hear your voice
And there we will laugh again
And there will come a day
When I'll hold you close
No More tears to cry
'Cause we'll have forever
But I'll say Goodbye for now

I can't imagine my life without you
You held a place all your own
Just knowing you were beneath the same sky
Oh what a joy I have known
On rainy days, in many ways
You'll water my heart
On starry nights I'll glmipse the light
of your smile
Never far from my heart

You'll stay with me
So I'll wait...for now
