So true it is; it is good to have work
and of great joy to work with dignity.
It does not matter what the lived task is –
it matters only how the job is done.
I am so very grateful to have work.
Yes, it makes me happy to be complete.
The appointed task fulfills my being,
getting the job done truly satisfies.
I have been hard at work for fifty years –
an educator – thousands have been led out,
helping others to realize self-esteem,
and the achievement of career goals.
Coming to my personal denouement…
I am graced by honoring self-esteem,
completed by commending career goals
I can now retire with dignity.
The future is full of possibility,
to continue to continue anew…
by living simply and simply leaving,
sharing love with peace and mercy.
