During Those Retirement Years

Age Group: Adult


"During Those Retirement Years"

by Amber Moonstone 8/23/06

At This time in my life,
I should be celebrating,
excited about the prospect
of slowing down and retiring.

I have worked so hard
every minute of every day;
unable to grasp,
what it will be like to retire.

Thinking about retiring
brings my grandparents to mind.
They were so happy and in love
during those retirement years.

I have chosen a different path;
I chose to start a new life during this
pre-retirement time of my life.
At age fifty, I decided to be single again.

It has been a tumultuous three years,
a learning and enlightening period,
of my life, that has brought me to
where I am today.

Three years have passed,
I am still single, and still frightened
of the prospective of retirement.
This fear comes from not wanting to be alone.

There were a few times
that a man came into my life,
that showed a glimmer of my grandparents love,
but through no fault of anyone, they left my life.

I long to share my love with that person,
who will be my companion, lover, and partner
for the rest of my days,
during this time and my retirement years.




Author's Notes: Retirement should be an exciting time of your life. A time to relflect on your career, be happy with what you have accomplished and reap those benefits from all of your hard work. At this time in my life, I cannot retire, I chose to be single and happy, and delayed the retirement process in order to do this. I could have stayed in an unhappy marraige and retired as planned at age 55, but happiness and your health is much more important than that.

I crave for the love that my grandparents had, it was so beautiful.....

Peace, Love and light,
Amber Moonstone
