Retirement

I had completed 60 years,
It was my time to retire,
From my 40 years of service,
From 40 years of honesty,
40 years of struggle,
40 years  of hardwork, 
I walked up my cabin,
To have a last glimpse, 
The place i worked in,
The place i worshiped,
The place i was in depression,
The place where i would share my tension,
The place imposed by heavy workload, 
The place relaxed with laughter,
The eagerly awaited lunch time,
The suspense about  colleagues tiffins,
The daily life discussion,
The attracting aroma of the office tea,
Enjoying, resting on the comfortable chair cushion, 
The old box like computer, 
The slow internet router,
The early morning wakeup,
The daily train rush,
The noisy irritating vehicles,
The evening peak traffic,
Those "Why so late?"interogating questions of my boss,
Those late overtime working hours,
The hectic stairs,the 24 hour non-functional lift,
The boring building, the everyday tiff,
The daily stress,the daily arisen temper,
Are some good some bad moments,yet ought to be remembered. 
Winding up my belongings,bidding adui to my colleagues,
Walking off my office, leaving for my home,
Turning back to have a last view of my office,
Advancing ahead, leaving with the honour of this unique achievement,
Looking forward, imagining my life after retirement!
