Goodbyes aren’t easy. There’s nothing fun about parting with a relative or friend, whether it’s for a few short days or for an extended period of time. Many of the children I work with must deal with this on a daily basis, and that is one of the things we can address during music therapy.

We always end our sessions with a goodbye song, and I try to stick with those that are happy and upbeat so that the transition to the next activity is hopefully a positive one. However, I wanted to address the anxious feelings that some children associate with saying goodbye, which is why I wrote this particular song.

“Time to Say Goodbye” could be used at different transition times throughout the day; I mention going to school and coming home from school in the lyrics, but you could easily add verses about going other places or seeing off a friend or loved one for a period of time.
