Retirement Poems for Men and Women

Retirement Poems for Men and Women

Inspiration for your retiring colleagues

A selection of our favourite retirement poems for women & men from GiddyLimits, the fabulous online magazine for over 50s.

A colleague retiring is an occasion to be commemorated, and a personalised reading of a retirement poem is a way to show them just how much they will be missed and give them lasting memories of their workplace.

We are continually on the look out for new poems to add to our list. Here are our favourites at the moment:

1. 'We wish you the best retirement'

This poem offers the sentiments many of us feel when a colleague retires.  FULL RETIREMENT POEM

2. 'We'll miss you'

A short, humorous retirement ditty for unexpected retirements.  FULL RETIREMENT POEM

3. 'Time to Travel'

The perfect retirement poem for the colleague who is retiring to travel and explore the world.  FULL RETIREMENT POEM

4. 'What is a Senior Citizen?'

A light-hearted look at the way times have changed. Sent our way by Chrissy Williams, who has it emblazoned on a tea towel! FULL RETIREMENT POEM >>
