It was spring but it was summer I wanted; the warm days and the great outdoors.
It was summer but it was autumn I wanted; the colorful leaves and the cool dry air.
It was autumn 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 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-age that I wanted; the presence of mind without limitations.
My life was over but I never got what I wanted.
Happynass Editor comment: isn't true? we often wish for what is next or what was in the past and forgot to enjoy the actual present time. each time has its own beauty and "flavor" enjoy it.
