Retirement Poems

1. Dear teacher…
You are the one
Who gave me knowledge
You are the one
Who prepared me for college
You are the one
Who made me surge ahead
The spirit of excellence
In my soul, you have bred
I salute everything
That you have done for me
Seeing you retire and leave
I cannot bear to see

2 Dear teacher…
Like a candle
That burns itself to spread light
You gave us everything
By working hard day and night
Just like flowers give away
Fragrance that they can’t smell
You have made our lives blossom
In way that words can’t tell
Happy retirement

3. You didn’t teach us from books
You taught us from your soul
In our lives you have played
A very important role
You didn’t just teach us from
What was there in our syllabus
You taught all those things
Which were important for us
Thanks so much for being
More than just a teacher
You have coached our lives
By being our mentor
Happy retirement

4. Who will give me
A gift when I do well
Who will pat my back
When I excel
Who will scold me
When I do something incorrect
Who will applaud me
When my work is perfect
I will miss you
My dear teacher
Motivating and inspirational
Like you, there is no other
Happy retirement

5. Today is the day
When you retire and go
But there is something
I want you to know
Your wise words
Will always be
In my heart
Until eternity
Happy retirement

6. No one can replace
Your position at school
Whoever even tries
Will be the biggest fool
For you, are the best teacher
Who doubles up as our guide
Post retirement, we will miss
Having you by our side

7. How happy you must be
To retire with a feeling of pride
With the good wishes of so many
Students and colleagues by your side
How satisfied you must be
To leave this building
After receiving so many thanks
And many warm feelings
How lucky you must feel
To leave behind your legacy
That will be cherished
By generations yet to be

8. There are a hundred things
Running in my mind right now
For being the best teacher
I want to thank you and how
There are a thousand things
In my heart at the moment
I wonder why more time
With you I haven’t spent
There are a million things
That I want to say today
Dear teacher, you have changed
My life in many ways

9. Unchartered journeys in life
You introduced me to
Less trodden paths of life
I found because of you
Unbelievable places in life
Because of you I could see
And unplanned successes
Also came to me
Unexpected things in life
Happened thanks to you
Teachers like you are gifted
Only to a lucky few
Happy retirement

10. We don’t want to study
Under a substitute
Who doesn’t have
Your amazing attitude
Your retirement has come
As a really bad blow
It is a loss to our school
Is what we want you to know

And look at the skies so blue

But we want you to remember
That you have always been
