It's been really hot here today. It made me yearn for the cooler days of fall. Then I thought of a poem.....It's called :
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 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 20. but it was 30 I wanted
To be mature and sophisticated.
I was middle-aged, but it was 20 I wanted...
The youth and the free spirit.
I was retired but it was middle-age I wanted..
The presence of mind, without limitations.
My life was over, and I never got what I wanted.
I think this is true to a certain point, but I cannot say I NEVER got what I wanted. I try to accept whatever life has to offer!
