I think (repeat: think) that this example might work.
Here in the United States, we have something called Daylight Saving Time -- when we turn our clocks ahead one hour in the Spring.
Then later in the Fall, we turn the clocks back one hour to Standard Time (as we did last Sunday).
Here's my dialogue:
Tom: Well, Daylight Saving Time is now gone.
Mona: I know.
Tom: Why are you looking so sad?
Mona: Because I want it [Daylight Saving Time] to be back as soon as possible." ( = I want it to return)
Tom: Sorry, Mona, but you will have to wait until Spring, 2013.
