  1. Hopeful Beginnings
    Poet: Julie Hebert


    My friend, the day has come
    For you to retire
    I wrote this little poem for you
    To send you wishes that are true:

    May your life be just starting,
    May only good find its way.
    May your thoughts be happy and joyful,
    And may you feel blessed every day.

    May the things you need find you,
    May your wants be yours someday.
    May your relations be strong and true,
    For you these things I pray.

    May you see the good in everything,
    May you find humor when you need it.
    May your faults not define you,
    But give you a strong and happy spirit.

    May you love with all your heart,
    May all around you feel this true.
    May your life be filled with greatness,
    And may happiness be in your view.

  4. Our Friendship Not Done
    Poet: Julie Hebert


    My friend, I wish it was me
    Leaving for retirement with glee!

    No more sleepy morning alarm bells
    And no more pesky bosses giving out orders to rebel.

    But, you do know you we will miss,
    For all the good times and memories that were bliss.

    We will be as cranky and growly as before
    "Congratulations! Off you go! Enjoy your new life galore!"

  6. Forever And A Day
    Poet: C. A. Lynch


    Friend, we have been forever, and a day
    And now you are retiring what can I say?
    You can sleep in every morning
    You can wear the same clothing.

    You can still come and meet me
    And we can have coffee
    You can tell me what it feels like
    To retire and not worry about strikes.

    The days will no longer be filled with work
    But you still have us, your network
    We look forward to your calls
    We will tell you about work and its downfalls.

    Work will not be the same
    Without you around who are we to blame
    Seriously, my friend, you will be missed
    We wish you well with new interests.

  8. Our Friendship Not Done
    Poet: Julie Hebert


    Our paths first crossed when we met in the workplace
    To each other, the office was home, no mistake
    Through minutia and mischief time quickly would pass
    It nurtured our friendship never to forsake.

    In a blink of an eye, you are retiring from this place
    Your departure may change us, but I'm here for you.
    I will miss you but our friendship remains steadfast
    There is room enough in life to make memories anew

    You taught me how to make work meaningful and fun
    In turn, I gave guidance on how job progress could be won
    Now off you go, embrace life with arms open wide
    My best wishes go with you, but our friendship is not done!

    I do feel a bit of envy of you.

    Your retirement will bring leisure days and grace,
    Many winsome moments to embrace.

    And although my envy shall not last long,
    Truly I wish great things for you all along!

    Best wishes and happiness I do send.
