Retirement Day

Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, ©2020

The day has now come
For all of us, not just some
To say goodbye and good luck
You did it, you lined up your ducks.

You get to do whatever you want
Whatever it is, we are confident
That success will follow you
No matter what you do

Happy Retirement, you will be missed
Wishing you a life full of bliss.

Happy Retirement
Congratualtions, Happy Retirement to you
You can now decide what you'll do
You can go for a nap whenever you want
The boss will no longer be there to haunt....
Poems for a Happy Retirement

Retirement Brings
Poet: Mary S. Scotsburn, ©2020

For some retirement makes them blue
And others, they are delighted they are through.

The daily routine can be thrown out
You can do want you want, you can even shout.

No more bosses, deadlines are gone
A time to be happy, a time for song.

Retirement is a gift to be taken
Start a new hobby, even plant a garden

Others have said, that those retirement days do fly by
You'll be busier now, you will say with a sigh.

Whatever retirement brings for you
Have fun in all that you do!

Retirement Wishes
We have loved working with you
We worked hard but had many laughs to
What are we going to do
You know we will miss you ...
