Mom’s retirement

A long and beautiful journey comes to an end this week,

  or do I say it is a new beginning for her?
Suddenly, the days will not be same,
no getting ready everyday to go to work.
Her mind wishes to continue the daily routine,
  her body refuses to co-operate.
As her body slows down and becomes lazy,
  her mind tells her to go on at the same rate.
I know she enjoys meeting her friends everyday,
  For long she has been doing that.
In this new phase, this is what she will miss the most,
  the everyday office gossips, the every day chats.
She has worked hard enough,
  and tomorrow as she bids goodbye to her workplace.
I know it will always be a special place for her,
  Her very own world, her very own space.
