! Old Happy Face!


Profession has inspired me
rendering services to the clients
on the check up of their health status
made sure that my analysis were correct
in which the doctors based their diagnosis
days in my whole life have been all work
as it comes to end this retirement day.

Today marks my honorable exit
on reaping what I sow for years
rise to claim the accolade I deserve
nothing more uplifting than retirement
onwards I shall wear an old happy face.

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
