"Goodbye May Seem Forever" is a song featured in Disney's The Fox and the Hound. Music by Richard Rich, Lyrics by Jeffrey Patch, Performed by Jeanette Nolan. A song similar to "Baby Mine" from Dumbo, "Someone’s Waiting For You" from The Rescuers, and "You'll Be in My Heart" from Tarzan.

Context

The song is sung by Widow Tweed when, after Amos Slade vows to kill Tod, who she has cared for since he was orphaned as a cub, realizes that she has no choice but to give him up and take him back to the forest from where he came from. She sings this song as she remembers the good time they had together.

Lyrics

Widow Tweed:
We met, it seems, such a short time ago
You looked at me - needing me so
Yet from your sadness
Our happiness grew
And I found out I needed you too
I remember how we used to play

I recall those rainy days
The fire's glow
That kept us warm
And now I find - we're both alone

Goodbye may seem forever
Farewell is like the end
But in my heart is a memory
And there you'll always be

Chorus:
Goodbye may seem forever
Farewell is like the end
But in my heart is a memory
And there you'll always be
