Welcome to Free Retirement Poems which brings you, guess what, poems about retirement that are free to use for non commercial use

Congratulations on your well deserved retirement,
Wishing you every happiness in the years ahead.
No lying about your age, more lying around the house
After lying much longer in bed

As a chapter closes in your life,
And a new one starts for you,
May your years be filled with all the things
You've been looking forward to!

It is time to step aside
For a less experienced and less able man
It is time to do nothing
Because you can

It's No Job, No Stress, No Pay
It's goodbye tension...hello pension
It's spending your kids inheritance
It's when work never gets a mention

Take life with a pinch of salt
A shot of tequila and a wedge of lime
Do nothing at all
But take your time

All the meaning has gone out of weekends
Now you have a Life
With half the money
And twice the wife

Have a terrific retirement
You earned it!

Jon Bratton 2009


Retirement is a time

To look back with satisfaction,
To look ahead with anticipation.
Retirement means you've done your time
A special time for you now
To fill each day with enjoyment..

Congratulations & Enjoy


Wishing you
all the joy
a happy retirement
can bring.
