passing objects to return results in an error

I expected the following code to return the lower and upper bounds of a 95% confidence interval:

confint95 = function(mean, se)
{
  confint = abs(se*1.96)
  lower = abs(mean-cint)
  upper = abs(mean+cint)
  return(lower,upper) 
}

But this gives this message:

Error in return(lower, upper) : multi-argument returns are not permitted

How can I set function to return the lower and upper bounds of a 95% confidence interval?
