Poem for Retirement


Retirement is the time when you have to start a new life, a life in which you will have time to enjoy and relax as well. This is the time suitable for completing all those desires and fun stuff you have left during your work life due to lack of time.

Poems for Retirement

The joys of retirement are simple
you can lie around all day in bed
when the daytime soap operas get boring
pull the covers right over your head

You can watch all the re-runs of Oprah
with a coffee and snack in each hand
if the weather turns crap, head off for a nap
who said that retirement was bland

You can hibernate all through the winter
no more sloshing around in the snow
you don't even need to put clothes on
what's the point - there's nowhere to go

You can thumb your nose at the alarm clock
no more early rising for you
no more dragging yourself on a Monday
leave that for us workers to do

The joys of retirement are simple
and I'm just a bit peeved at such luck
so until I retire from employment
working Monday to Friday can suck
by Evelyn Macdonald

Poem for the retired people

Goodbye to work, you're on a high - it's the best day of your life!
You gladly hand the reins over - goodbye to toil and strife.
When morning comes, you lie in bed and you look up at the ceiling -
There's no-one here to harrass you - I know just how you're feeling.

The sun shines through the window, you hear the clatter of some feet -
It's people who are off to work, you can hear them in the street.
Within you comes a warming glow - your new life just is starting.
There's cards from many work-friends who were sad at your departing.

But you must arise, get dressed and out - there's no time left to lose.
Make the most of it, the day is yours - just do exactly as you choose.
Just why should you feel guilty on the best day of your life?
"Because I said a cheerio to my poor, still working wife".

Retirement . . . is when you stop living at work and begin working
at living.

Retirement: The time in your life when time is no longer money.
— Unknown wise person

I have retired, un retired, and retired again all in the past 10 years.
I find the biggest trouble with having NOTHING to do is . . . you
can't tell when your done
— Unknown wise person

Retirement is wonderful. It's doing nothing without worrying about
getting caught at it.
— Gene Perret

I retired early for health reasons — my company was sick of me and
I was sick of them.
— Unknown wise person

Retirement without the love of letters is a living burial.
— Seneca

You've had a long working life
As everyone knows
You can now do nothing at all
And then have a doze
Enjoy Your Retirement
