but it was summer I wanted {dallas, tx engagement & wedding photographer}

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.


Read this charming poem the other day on this blog, and was instantly smitten with the sweet simplicity of it.  Not to mention convicted about how I do this very thing in my life so often.  Lets be grateful for today and all the blessing's it has in it, yes?  

Much Love.

  2. Soooooo true! Reminds me of the Theodore Roosevelt quote, "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are." Lovely reminder. :)

  4. That's a good poem. It surely tells what a human being is like. We never are satisfied with things in life.
