Waiting on a school year to start Then

Waiting on summer to begin

Waiting on a job promotion

Waiting for kids to grow up

Then the school year starts

and finishes 

The summer begins

You get promoted

Then you quit

Your kids are growing up and going to college  

And you wonder why you have spent your whole life waiting

When you should have just enjoyed it
