On Retirement Poem by Dr John Celes

On Retirement

Rating: 3.8

Retire man, so what!
’Tis just a natural thing
That many tend to do.

’Tis not the end;
’Tis a beginning, dear friend;
’Tis a Godsend;
And He will fend.

So, keep your calm;
Retirement’s a balm,
For wearied body, mind!
A new happiness, you’ll find.

And God will take you,
In a newer direction;
With Heaven as goal,
Why then worry, pal?

Cheer up man!
And pray as fervently as you can;
Life will be fine,
Once again.

God will provide;
God will decide;
Just rest awhile
And wear a smile.

Today will be gone;
The morrow will be born;
God will your life adorn
When comes a new morn!

A new door opens, right today;
Despair not brother, ne’er, nay!
This is your great DAY!
You’ll soon be in your new way!
God bless you!
