Treasure Island

Allen Brodell


Retirement


A new stage opens
on your life page
retirement day
day to say our good bye's
to many you were special

The time has come to say good - bye
your time to leave a career behind
time to enter a well deserved rest period
blessing from God Almighty

How time did fly by?
through your long journey
on many roads you have travelled

a Glorious joyous time to remember
in God's Grace and Mercy
well done, well done

Laughter, joy and tears,
you have shared with many
colleagues and friends over the years
beautiful memories will be so dear to all
taking the lessons you have taught us all
through the grace of God in to our hearts
God's blessing you were to us all

Although we are sad to see you leave
many things today will remain
in our hearts and minds

Enter into your retirement
with joy and happiness
in the hand of God our Heavenly Father
to bless the green pastures
of your retirement years

Good bye, Good bye

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
