Good-night! good-night! as we so oft have said Beneath this roof at midnight, in the days That are no more, and shall no more return. Thou hast but taken up thy lamp and gone to bed; I stay a little longer, as one stays To cover up the embers that still burn.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Say good-bye er howdy-do What's the odds betwixt the two? Comin' goin' every day Best friends first to go away Grasp of hands you'd ruther hold Than their weight in solid gold, Slips their grip while greetin' you, Say good-bye er howdy-do?james whitcomb riley
Gone flitted away, Taken the stars from the night and the sun From the day! Gone, and a cloud in my heart.
Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.william shakespeare
