Work is worship (Poem from my college magazine)

Work is worship,
Says the days that have leaped;
As we sowed,
So we have reaped.

We've reaped love,
From this lovely land;
Ploughed it with perseverance,
Holding each other’s hand.

Reflections of ourselves
In each other we saw;
We saw this place,
From woods to concrete grow.

Our daydreams,
Had many colours;
The happiness we shared,
Like the fragrance from flowers.

New ideas, new ways,
We’ve acquired with zeal;
New techniques, new thoughts,
In this ordeal.

The nook and corner of this place
Reverberate in our heart;
The time we spent together,
And found it difficult to part.

Now, the time has come,
To wave goodbye,
And to embrace each other,
Refreshing the days gone by.

But a promise we’ve made,
At this final frontier we’ve learned,
That, work is worship.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
