Retirement is time to consider with pride
the achievements you've worked for and earned,
To realize all of the ways you have grown
and to treasure the lessons you've learned.
Retirement is time to remember so fondly
the good times you've had in the past,
A time to appreciate people you've known
and feel certain those friendships will last.
Retirement is time to be fully aware
of the promise that life brings your way,
To believe in your dreams, to follow your rainbow,
to celebrate every new day.
