Enjoying the serenity of the dawn walk
You can feel the wet grass dew
Nearby, screeches the gray hawk
While Aurora's ascending at the peak's view
The crack of the dawn's mesmerizing
You contemplated, 'twas a rough voyage
Then forlorn when dilemma's arising
Yet you keep traversing to your anchorage
And you conquered and survived
Those adversities along the way
Unwavering faith propelled you to thrive
That no avalanche could ever sway !
Now you're in a bliss for being retired
For you know how to burry the hatchet
No any bitterness or regrets inside
But reverence to anyone in this planet
You may have arthritis and blurred vision
Yet the vivacity spirit that endears
Still thumping on, ready for an expedition
With spouse devotion throughout the years
Oh, indeed it's a marvelous journey !
Thank you God for reaching retirement
Thank you for the privilege and mercy
More thanks for a grandson who's ebullient !
Oh, you're in deep gratitude
For fulfilling your life's purpose
For experiencing life's beauty and solitude
A sweet reminiscene in this earth's surface
From a distance, grandson's coming
A spectacular view in your sight
A touching moment, your tears are flooding
Can't wait to embrace your forever delight !
