Best in Retirement

Best in retirement.

There comes a joy, a contentment not had before in life.

The struggles in life about over, the ordeals mostly gone.

Sweet surrender it is called but it’s more like victory.

Victory over life not had years before.

New friends become familiar, old ones more dear.

For some it is to know steadfastly they are going home.

Not to an earthly dwelling place but an eternal home.

To Loves eternity without question.

Thank much for your comment. I live in an apartment complex for those over 62. Hear much on the down side of retirement. Beat of Retirement is my finding and answer to. Peace, Love and Joy.

Thanks much for your comment, rating and the kind and caring advice. Picked up doing poetry after quitting smoking at 50. At times seemingly one addition for another. Ha. Some community classes in poetry did help. Peace, Love and Joy.

I am enjoying retirement for ten years already and hope for another 30 years! haha. The question I have now is this: How did I find time to work? Now I have not enough time to do the things I love! Beautifully done my friend, John!

Thanks much for your comment. Years of work seem to never of happened but I know they did. Down side of retirement might not make a good poem. Finding enough time has always been a problem especially for thing we Love. Peace, Love and Joy.
