When You Retire

Retirement.

It should be a celebration.

Dancing

There should be accolades for all that you did.

For all that you built.

For everyone who’s lives were made better by your service.

Laud

There should be someone to wax poetic about the standard you did not meet,

But created.

And someone thoughtful,

Who will buy you just the right gifts.

Thoughtful

You will walk out of a door.

And leave it behind.

Trusting that what you built

Is strong

And sustainable.

Legacy

Because what you did was not work.

It was passion.

It was valued.

It was taught.

It was learned.

And you are leaving part of it behind.

And we won’t let you down.
