Retirement
An all American end
From an all American dream
Once they had a dream to work and live a life in luxury
Maybe even a loving family
A home to shelter them
Clothes on their back
And warm food in their tummies
As the years have passed
Slowly when you were living in the moment
And quickly as it was passing
You came to realize that you have come a long way
And touch many (many) lives
An honorable end
Not really an ending per se
But a new beginning
Happy Retirement
