A Loving Farewell

Life moves on with or without us come what may
Oh, Sorrow, how we feared this day.
Oh, Sorrow, how we tremble in dismay
The moment is upon us when we must say


Your retirement came too soon and caught us unaware
Now tears fall, are falling, falling tears of despair.
We have cherished your friendship, your humor, your care
And how you looked after us, ever constant, always there


Confetti here, confetti there confetti in the air 
As we celebrate your honorable and hard-working years
With applause resounding and loving but bittersweet cheers
You are special Lovely Lady we will hold you close by
With warmth and respect always and on that you may rely


Pretty Lady, Lovely Lady, Pretty Please,
Give us Ten Thousand Hugs before you take your leave
Remember us, think of us and do not forget
We want to be the memories you will never regret


As you go, fly safe, fly far, soar high and away
A New Adventure awaits you so do not delay.
God Speed, Lovely Lady, as your hour of departure nears
May you enjoy one thousand times one thousand
Happy, fulfilling years
