Retirement Finale

If you know anyone like the person described in this poem, retirement isn't for everyone. Although eventually, all good things come to an end. Retirement is inevitable, so the hope is that everyone makes that choice for themselves at a time when they still are able to enjoy the things they love to do. This poem was written for someone who just couldn't take the step. They attempted retirement several times but it never stuck and although they pulled back a little, they never fully committed and still worked six days a week. This is frustrating for family and friends who only want the best for their loved ones. This poem was written in hopes that there will be one final retirement party and this time, it will stick!

Best Wishes / Poems / Retirement Poems / Retirement Finale

Retirement may be a cause or worry,
For your family and for you.
You've always kept so busy,
Taking time to relax you are not use to.

You've even tried to retire,
A few times, but no luck.
Just like relaxing days,
Retirement never fully stuck.

You cut back a little,
Making time for golf some days.
We were all so happy thinking,
Maybe golf will lead to retirement ways.

Alas, we all surrendered,
Gave up any retirement hope.
You must love work as much as golf,
Its time we all just coped.

Then one fine day it happened,
The light at the end of the tunnel grew.
You mentioned retirement might be in the cards afterall,
We finally heard the clue.

Today's the day we celebrate,
Still not sure if we should believe.
It may be your third attempt,
But for sure retirement is finally achieved.

And if not, thats fine, it's your choice,
But we have to make you this threat.
Today is the absolute final,
Retirement party you will get!
Julie Hebert
