5 Retirement Poems For Friends

Many friendships are developed at work. Use these retirement poems when your friends retire. While we will miss them we are also happy for them and can't wait to join them in retirement. Or perhaps we have already retired and they are now joining us for fun filled days of life as a retiree. It is important to realize that friendship does not have to end because of a retirement - a true friendship will remain long after the person no longer works.

  3. 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 strike.

    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.

    I am so happy for you
    Can't wait to see what you do.

    Poet: Poet: C. A. Lynch


    Retirement is a new stage
    It doesn't mean you have aged.
    You see, my friend

    We will find a way
    To still be friends and do the things
    That life without work will bring.

    Our friendship will always be
    Treasured and fun to every degree
    Retirement changes nothing
    Except no work, just living.
