But it was Summer I wanted….

It was spring but it was summer I wanted;
the warm days and the great outdoors….
It was summer but it was fall I wanted;
the colorful leaves and the cool dry air.
It was fall but it was winter I wanted;
the beautiful snow and the joy of the holiday season.
It was now winter but it was spring I wanted;
the warmth and the blossoming of nature.
I was a child but it was adulthood I wanted;
the freedom and the respect.
I was twenty but it was thirty I wanted;
to be mature and sophisticated.
I was middle-aged but it was twenty I wanted;
the youth and the free spirit.
I was retired but it was middle-aged I wanted;
the presence of mind without limitations.
My Life was over but I never got what I wanted.
– poem by a 14 yr old.
I read this on one of my favorite blogs the other day and thought, how true it is and what a good reminder to be thankful for all the blessings you have!
