Forgot to live

First I was dying to finish college and to start working.

Then I was dying to get married to have children.

And then I was dying for my children to grow up

so that I could go back to work.

And then I was dying to retire so that I might finally do

all the things I had always wanted to do.

And now I am retired and I am dying…

and suddenly I realize that I forgot to live.

    I really like this one as what this is what all of us have been running after and still what do we get is …failure…not all can understand the fact. So live and live like every day is the last day in your life.
