1) It’s tough to say goodbye

To a person so valued

In your absence this office

Is going to be so subdued

It’s hard to bid farewell

To an person so respected

Without you this office

Will feel so deserted

It’s difficult to see you go

The office will be stripped bare

Of the person who gave it

The most amount of care



2) Do you remember

All those inconsequential conversations

All that casual banter

And those faulty decisions

Do you recollect

All that infectious laughter

And those never ending coffee breaks

Which we thought made us smarter

I will miss every moment

I spent with you mate

If I ever get a chance to work with you again

I would love to collaborate



3) My dear colleague….

With whom will I discuss the stock prices of the day

To whom will I always have something to say

Who will help me sort things out when I fumble

Who will watch my back when office gossip rumbles

Who will I invite to my house for a barbecue

Who will cover up for my absence like you

It is a pity that I won’t see you at work anymore

Coming to work every day will feel like a boring chore



4) Happy days don’t last forever

That adage is true

Now that you have resigned

And we won’t be working with you

Good times don’t always last

Someone did say wisely

Now that you are leaving us

For another company

But there is one more proverb

That says friends are forever

And if that is true, then our ties

Will be broken never



5) To my colleague….

Wherever you go

May your skills bring productivity

Wherever you go

Your talent, may your seniors see

Wherever you go

May your abilities fetch you accolades

Wherever you go

May your glory never fade

Wherever you go

Success, may you see

Wherever you go

May you always remember me



6) Once a co-worker, but always a mate

May we be sealed together by our fate

Once a partner, but always a buddy

May we cross paths again in our destinies

Once an associate, but always a chum

You kept my work life from being humdrum

Once a colleague, but always a friend

May our newfound friendship never end



7) No matter how much

Champagne we pour

No matter how many smiles

We show on the fore

This celebration of your farewell

But a mere formality

The real thing is that

We are all very unhappy

To see you go out

The doors of this place

In our hearts there will be

A hollow and empty space



8) FAREWELL to a colleague like you, so vivacious

F stands for you being Fastidious

A is for you being Ambitious

R signifies you being Rigorous

E acknowledges you for being Exemplary

W declares that you are Worthy

E comes again for you being Extraordinary

L is because you are always Lively

L comes again because you are so Luminous

By using all these adjectives, so precious

I want to convey that your work is thorough and vigorous

With you around, work was always so joyous



9) You leave us on two notes

One good and one bad

The first one leaves us happy

And the second one makes us sad

You got a better job elsewhere

And that is great news

But that fact that you are going

Is giving all of us the blues



10) To my dear colleague….

You are leaving us and going away

That is going to be such a burden

We will miss all your insightful inputs

You were our employee number one

You have found a greener pasture

And maybe a much better avenue

But you will be missed a lot

I wish a heartfelt goodbye to you


Touching farewell card poem for colleagues and co-workers

11) Every person leaves a stamp

In this world in their own way

Similarly you too have left

An impression that will stay

Integrity and hard work

Are the ideals you’ve promoted

Determination and honesty

Your work has always reflected

A plethora of values

You’re giving us as you leave

Your absence in this office

We will heavily bereave



12) Farewell is said to those colleagues

Who leave and never turn back

But I am sure you will keep in touch

Of each other’s progress, we will have track

Farewell is said to those colleagues

Who permanently say goodbye

But I am sure we will have the time

To text each other hello and hi


13) Like how a diver has to dive again and again

To find that precious pearl from the ocean

I may have to change many jobs to find

A colleague like you who is so much fun

Like how an ant has to climb again and again

To finally reach the top of the tree

I may have to try very hard to find

A perfect colleague like you, for me



14) I can see that your Twitter feed is overflowing

With messages of farewell and goodbye

I can see that your Facebook is brimming

With good wishes, I can see why

Colleagues have pinned inspirational quotes

Wishing you farewell on Pinterest

You might have got cards from friends and family

Wishing you nothing but the best

But mine is a simple poem

That I have written especially for you, mate

May you have a great run in your next job

With only success, written in your fate



15) Take me along with you

To the new company you are going to

So that I can share your cabin space

And continue to look at your inspirational face

Because I am going to miss you a lot

Without you here, I hope I don’t lose the plot

So the best solution of this situation

Is to send your new company my job application



16) My best moments at work were not when

We won the clients’ hearts and got their clean chit

My best moments at work were when

We got appreciation as a team, bit by bit

My best moments at work were not when

Our department emerged as the best

My best moments at work were when

Our joint efforts got singled out from the rest

My best moments at work were not when

We got awards and trophies new

My best moments at work were when

I got to spend time and work with a colleague like you



17) As you start earning big bucks

As you start meeting new mates

As you start getting new projects

As opportunity opens its gates

Don’t forget your old colleagues

Who were fond of you so much

On phone, Facebook and email

We hope you keep in touch



18) About your departure, I had a bit of a hunch

When you were sending job applications

But I deliberately didn’t reveal

That had a whiff of your intentions

A new place will give you a good change

From the routine you followed here

I hope your new job turns out to be

A turning point in your career



19) A new role awaits you

So does a new cabin

New people await you

Whose hearts you have to win

New goals will be set

Along with new tasks to finish

The company of new colleagues

As you will learn to cherish

But don’t let this make you

Forget our relationship so fond

And our fruitful association

Which is now a loving bond



20) I wouldn’t mind saying goodbye to my supervisor

I wouldn’t mind saying goodbye to my manager

I wouldn’t mind saying goodbye to my associate

But I hate saying goodbye to a wonderful co-worker

I wouldn’t mind saying goodbye to my boss

I wouldn’t mind saying goodbye to teammate new

I wouldn’t mind saying goodbye to my client

But I hate saying goodbye to an old colleague like you

Farewell dear friend

Sweet goodbye poem for colleagues farewell speech

21) A lump in the throat

An anxious drop of sweat

A tear in the eye

A feeling of debt

The skip of a heartbeat

Emptiness in the soul

This is how I will feel

As you leave your role

The feeling is of that

A friend going away

Who I will remember

Each and every day



22) If only all my colleagues were

As supportive as you

There would be no office politics

Manipulations would be few

If only all managers were

As transparent as you’ve been

Offices would be much happier

Than we’ve ever seen

If only all people were

As amazing as you are

Just like you, in life they too

Would go really far



23) I was lucky to have a co-worker like you so fine

I am proud to have called you a colleague of mine

Together, we both made a super cool team

Of the entire office, we were the cream

With your resignation, I have lost a dear teammate

To get another one like you, I will have to wait

I wish you luck in your new enterprise

If it becomes an overnight success, I won’t be surprised



24) As you tread along on a new path

You will face many obstacles

As you cross new nooks and turns in your way

You will have to overcome new troubles

Believe in yourself and the goal you have chosen

Then you will cruise along just fine

As I wish you farewell, I just want to say

That you will always be a good friend of mine



25) As the goodbyes start pouring in

From the whole office

You will start feeling a little anxious

But you will also feel some bliss

Accepting change in life

Is a tough thing

But without this daring move

Your dreams will never get wings



26) The time has come

To finally say goodbye

To lament the loss

Of a good colleague, and sigh

The time has also come

To up our hopes

That your replacement

Knows the job’s ropes



27) You are leaving us with a gift

Of a very valuable legacy

Of doing things with exact precision

Very carefully and very meticulously

You are also leaving us

On a solemn note

We will miss a colleague like you

Who has always made us gloat



28) You are leaving the job

But you aren’t leaving us

So stop grabbing all the attention

And making such a fuss

We will meet often

And regularly keep in touch

Now stop making us say

That we will miss you very much



29) I don’t want tomorrow

To dawn upon me

I don’t want life to

Trudge on incessantly

I don’t wish to reach a point

Where I have no option

But to say yes unwillingly

To work with anyone

I don’t want the fun and joy

To go out of the window

But with you gone now

I am going to be low

Goodbye dear friend

I will think of you always

Fondly remembering things we did

And our good old days



30) Now that you are not around

There will be less noise in here

All the chaos will reduce

In the direction of success, we will veer

I hope you know that I am kidding

And none of this is true

This office is going to be a graveyard

Without a bubbly colleague like you
