  1. Goodbye To Our Colleague As You Retire
    Poet: Julie Hebert

    Our lives are filled with wondrous gifts,
    Many events that make us who we are.
    Graduations, weddings all the way to retirement we go.
    Enjoying every moment as a superstar.

    But I think we all love when retirement comes,
    And we can relax more than ever before.
    No more alarms, meetings, or getting ready for work,
    You can do whatever you want and more.

    So best wishes to you from all of us here,
    Who are envious of you more than ever.
    Hard to believe things are going to change,
    This work family is going to be severed.

    But we know deep down in our hearts,
    That you'll always be a part of us.
    You'll use this time wisely with no waste at all,
    If you do we will most likely make a fuss.

    Why you ask would we make a fuss,
    When it's your retirement come true.
    Well, you see it'll be a while before we can retire,
    We will be living vicariously through you!

  2. A Joyous Time Indeed
    Poet: Julie Hebert

    Congratulations on your retirement.
    It's a joyous time indeed.
    Say goodbye to the everyday hustle and bustle,
    And enjoy the slower speed.

    Take the things you love,
    And make them happen every day.
    Retirement is a time for you,
    So make some time to play.

    Whatever you love to do,
    Make it number one.
    This is your one and only time,
    To have a lot of fun.

    Wishing a lot for you,
    At this amazing time.
    Hope its everything you imagined,
    By enjoying your favourite past time.
