but it also lessens some of the stress and strife.
Exiting the work force after so many years
is a mixture of emotion between joy and tears.
The tears come from missing co-workers and friends
and the chats at the water cooler 'bout the latest gossip and trends.
It won't be much fun to debate all alone
about the length of a mini-skirt or predict the unknown.
Rest for the mind, the body and soul
is the purpose of retirement and is man's main goal.
Every worker I know cannot wait for the day
they can shut up their alarm clock with "Hip, Hip Hooray!"
Memories were made and will always remain
of the Ups and Downs, and joy and pain.
Every day of retirement I have thoroughly enjoyed
but I'm grateful to God that I was not unemployed.
No more nine to five shifts or from midnight to dawn
my working days are over and are now long gone.
Today I discovered a brand new goal
and maybe, just maybe...I can enlighten just one lost soul.
